Eucon Shipping and Transport Limited have completed the production of 300 New 45ft units in the CIMC factory in Nantong China. This is a continuation of the container fleet renewal program over the last 4 year which has seen the addition of 1,100 new 45ft units to the fleet since July 2012. The new units will be incorporated into the container fleet from September 2016 and will further improve the overall quality of services offered to our customers. We look forward to the addition of more Eucon green to the container fleet.
These FAQs relate to new mandatory rules, effective from 1 July 2016, concerning the requirement for shippers to verify the gross mass of a container carrying cargo.
Without a verified gross mass the packed container shall not be loaded aboard ship.

Container freight volumes in the period from 1 July 2015 to 7 November 2015 were up 7%. Units lifted at our container ports at Dublin and Belfast were up 51%, with underlying port lifts up 5% after adjusting for Belfast VT3 concession volumes in 2015.

The Container and Terminal Division includes the intermodal shipping line Eucon as well as the division’s strategically located container terminals in Dublin and in Belfast.
Revenue in the division was up 6.5% to €57.2 million (2014: €53.7 million), EBITDA increased to €5.5 million (2014: €3.7 million) while operating profit rose to €4.1 million (2014: €2.4 million).
Total containers shipped were at similar levels to the prior year at 142,200 teu (2014: 142,700 teu) due to changes in customer route configurations. Units lifted at the division’s port facilities in Dublin and Belfast rose 11.9% to 103,700 lifts (2014: 92,700 lifts) helped by the additional operations at Victoria Terminal 3 (VT3).
Following the award of the Services Concession for the operation of a combined container terminal at VT3 in Belfast Harbour, the process of consolidating our existing terminal volumes at Belfast Container Terminal into one location at VT3 is underway. We expect the process to be completed by the end of the autumn
