June 17 - In a move which the company's owner Andy Thorne describes as "an excellent fit", Kestrel Liner Agencies has been named as UK general agent for FALLine.

The FALLine service handles regular breakbulk, heavy lift and project cargoes and offers calls at Middlesbrough, Antwerp and Bremen as well as Montreal (Sorel), Hamilton, Cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee and Burns Harbor (Chicago). 

Thorne says: "This will offer our customers the opportunity to move conventional cargo directly into Canada, the Great Lakes and US Midwest." 

The FALLine business will be managed by John Gore from Kestrel's new office in northern England.
