Andrew Weir Shipping (AWS) Ltd. is further developing its service by adding a high-speed vessel and changing its Great Britain port of call from Thamesport to Tilbury. The vessel, christened City of Edinburgh, is one of the swiftest within the AWS fleet and will provide a service out of port Tilbury. Jim Robb, an executive from AWS, is confident that bringing Tilbury into the EPIC schedule will provide the company's clients with direct links to Britain's motorway network and the 30 million people within a 140-kilometer radius of the port. The vessel will sail from Tilbury as part of the weekly EPIC service and will call at Hamburg, Antwerp, Gioia Tauro, Port Said, Aqaba, Jebel Ali, Port Qasim and Nhava Sheva.
