In his most recent State of the Union address, President Barack Obama called for the creation of a “transatlantic trade and investment partnership” between the United States and the European Union. This partnership would reduce trade barriers and promote free trade between Europe and America.
How does Eimskip contribute to trade across the Atlantic? Eimskip is a transportation and shipping company that is ahead of the curve by enabling increased trade across the Atlantic. Eimskip opened its first office in Newfoundland in 1990, initially servicing foreign trawlers and a nearby U.S. military base. Following the closure of the military base, Eimskip continued to use Argentia and Halifax as ports of call to bring international goods in and out of Atlantic Canada. In addition, Eimskip added the port of St. Anthony, which strengthens the link between Atlantic Canada and the international marketplace.
Through their strong European network, Eimskip services ports reaching as far north as Murmansk, Russia, the port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands, including Stavanger, Norway, and Aberdeen, Scotland. This network is directly linked to ports of call in North America.
This increased use of Trans-Atlantic trade routes has created a new opportunity to further expand Eimskip’s business on the eastern seaboard, subsequently adding Portland, Maine, to their port of calls. Using this new port, equipped with a 100-ton mobile crane and recently renovated warehouse facilities, Eimskip can accomplish two key goals: shorten transit times between North America and Europe, and offer bi-weekly port calls. Portland also offers easy connections to other transportation methods, such as rail or truck lines.
Eimskip’s overall positioning is relevant for oil and gas professionals and other industries that span the Atlantic. This potential is rooted in the company’s ability to connect markets together and ensure that goods arrive on time and on budget. In addition to simply getting goods from point A to point B, Eimskip can also support a company with documentation, storage capabilities, offloading, and generallogistics. By positioning itself to take advantage of Trans- Atlantic trade opportunities, Eimskip can help oil and gas firms serve customers and markets on either side of the ocean quickly and efficiently. Eimskip will be there to serve customers and strengthen the trade bonds that link Europeans and North Americans together.
