Last Boat of the Season Sets Sail

After an extremely successful shipping season, Andusia took a trip to Copenhagen to watch and welcome the arrival of the final boat of the shipping season.

Our final vessel, Lady Ariane, set sail out of Chatham Docks on Saturday 5th March, loaded with 2500 tonnes of baled and wrapped RDF, ready to be used for energy in Copenhagen.

We are proud to have sent 13 bulk vessels to and from various destinations over the last 6 months, resulting in a cumulative weight of 35,000 tonnes of waste being diverted from UK landfill and being exported for energy.

Chris May, Operation Director, comments “We’ve had a great bulk shipping season, seeing many vessels departing from variations locations across the UK. It’s been fantastic to build solid relationships with the ports and shippers alike, making us extremely excited for the new contract to begin soon. Despite challenging times, it’s been rewarding to bring our supply chain closer and create more of a partner approach to waste management.”

Taking volume and location into consideration, bulk shipping of RDF can often be more cost effective and environmentally sustainable than other methods. Get in touch with the Andusia team on 01992 666257 to discuss your bulk shipping and waste requirements.
