Toyofuji Shipping (TFS) and the port authority of Zeebrugge celebrated the shipment of 2 million vehicles between Zeebrugge and the ports of Grimsby and Sheerness. The celebration was attended by TFS chairman T. Takahashi, senior manager M. Inukai, Luc Decock, general manager Europe and port authority CEO Mr. Joachim Coens, as well as clients and business contacts.
Toyofuji Shipping started a European establishment in Zeebrugge in 2004. The first vehicle was shipped in 2005, on board of M/V Sea Cruiser 1.
“The port of Zeebrugge is of high value to us because we are a subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corporation and they have a hub here. On the other hand, the largest automotive port in the world offers many possibilities for other transport.” Luc Decock, algemeen directeur TFS in Europe
In 2020 TFS will raise capacity by deploying a larger ship on the Zeebrugge-Grimsby-Sheerness route.
