Yoram Hoffman: the port of Tilbury has modern cold storage facilities which enables Israeli fresh produce exporters to store goods at relatively low cost
 
A delegation from the port of Tilbury visited Israel recently aiming to convince Zim Integrated Shipping Co. to call at Tilbury rather than Felixstowe.
 
It is now understood that the driving force behind the visit was the German shipping company Hamburg Sd which uses the  Port of Tilbury as one of its main European hubs, mainly serving Central and South American shipping services.
 
Felixstowe is one of Zim's UK gateways and has served the port for more than 20 years. Its longest established service -  JOS (known also as UKEI service) to the Eastern Mediterranean offers a fixed day weekly service to Limassol, Alexandria, Ashdod and Haifa.
 
Mr. Yoram Hoffman, Managing Directorof A.M.A. Associated Maritime Agencies Ltd. Hamburg Sd's Israeli Agent, noted that the port of Tilbury is located on the River Thames, adjacent to the M25 London orbital motorway, and less than 30 miles from the centre of London, it is the closest container terminal to the UK largest market area. It also has its own dedicated rail and feeder links to all major commercial centers in the UK and beyond.
 
Hoffman added that the  Port of Tilbury has modern cold storage facilities which enables Israeli fresh produce exporters to store goods at relatively low cost while Felixstowe has no such facility.
