Port of London launches online Connections Atlas

A new online shipping service world atlas has been launched by the Port of London. The ‘Connections Atlas’ is an interactive facility that offers people in the shipping, logistics and related transport sectors an easy way to match their shipping requirements with the services and terminals available within the Port of London.

Features include:

  • details of shipping services to and from the Port of London
  • details of the shipping companies and agents providing the relevant services
  • details of Port of London terminals and port facilities

The Atlas has been developed by the Port of London’s marketing team, working closely with the website design company Futura Interactive. It is based on the award winning interactive Port map launched last year.

Users simply enter the type of cargo concerned and the origin and final destination of their shipment. The system then provides instant access to the options available to move cargo utilising the variety of shipping services available to and from London.

Geoff Adam, Port of London head of marketing said:

“This Atlas has been developed to meet the needs of the global marketplace. Anyone looking to ship cargo via London can gain detailed information about terminals and shipping routes to and from London from their computer, wherever they are in the world.”

The connections atlas can be viewed at www.portoflondon.co.uk/connections
