New ‘Express’ Transatlantic Sea Freight Service

Written by BABCPHL Corporate Member MetroShipping and GreenWorldwide

One of the UK’s largest privately-owned freight forwarders, Metro has been supporting Transatlantic trade with the United States in air and sea freight services since our inception nearly 50 years ago.

We are particularly proud of our long-standing association with Philadelphia, which is why we are so pleased that our new in-house ‘Express’ transatlantic sea freight service calls directly at PhilaPort, as well as New York, Norfolk and Jacksonville.

The weekly USX service by group company, Ellerman City Liners is supported by our own offices and delivers some of the fastest transit times available – direct to Philadelphia from just 13 days – and because it utilises non-congested ports and terminals, port clearance and inland movements are seamless too.

USX is the only direct service operating to and from Jacksonville, serving the Baltic, Scandinavia, Europe and the United States, with four calls on the East Coast, including Philadelphia.

Green Worldwide Shipping serves as Metro’s U.S. partner to ensure American shippers have direct communication and support from our preferred local supply chain experts.  Green offers comprehensive international freight forwarding, warehousing, and trade compliance throughout 16 locations across the United States.

If this service is of interest, please contact Bruno Pierrat – bruno.pierrat@greenworldwide.com or Lewis White – lewis.white@metroshipping.co.uk.
