The shipping company X-Press Feeders is to regularly visit the HHLA TK Estonia terminal

On Wednesday, April 17, the container ship X-Press Godavari arrived at the HHLA TK Estonia terminal, as the world’s largest independent feeder container carrier X-Press Feeders opened its weekly route Rotterdam-Antwerp-Vuosaari-Muuga-Kotka-Rotterdam.

“I am happy to see that X-Press Feeders, in cooperation with Evergreen, will regularly visit the port of Muuga, further supporting our ambition to be not only the gateway to Estonian foreign trade, but also one of the trade hubs on the Baltic Sea,” commented Andres Uusoja, member of the board of HHLA TK Estonia.

X-Press Feeders will call at the port of Muuga with two feeder vessels X-Press Mulhacen and X-Press Godavari. It is expected that in the third quarter of 2024 X-Press Feeders will bring new and more environmentally friendly container ships, which use methanol as fuel, with greenhouse gas emissions that are at least 60% lower than in the case of conventional marine fuel, both to the line passing through Muuga and to the Rotterdam-Antwerp-Klaipeda-Riga-Rotterdam line.

Employing ships using alternative fuel, X-Press Feeders and the ports of Rotterdam, Antwerp, Klaipeda, Riga, Tallinn, Helsinki and Kotka will create the first green shipping corridor of its kind in the Baltic Sea.

X-Press Feeders, which was founded in Singapore in 1972, is the world’s largest independent common carrier. X-Press Feeders operates a fleet of more than 100 vessels, calling at more than 180 ports worldwide.

HHLA TK Estonia is a part of the leading European logistics group Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) that operates container terminals in Hamburg, Odessa, Trieste and Muuga, as well as runs logistics interconnections and intermodal centres in many regions of Central and Eastern Europe.
