Monday 15 August was a day of firsts at the Humber Sea Terminal, as it welcomed the first ever Deep Sea Pure Car Carrier to enter the Humber carrying 2400 Kia vehicles.
The ship "MV Crystal Ray" owned by Eukor, is to be the first of many to bring Kias to Killingholme, a port chosen by Kia for its river berths, excellent central location, land availability and quality of its specialist services.
As one of the fastest growing brands in the UK new car market, Kia outgrew its current operation in Sheerness and the new facility enables Kia to enhance logistics and vehicle preparation to meet future volume targets of 100,000 units by 2010.
During the remainder of 2005, over 20,000 Kia vehicles will pass through the site and in 2006 this will rise to 60,000.
This is a 15-year+ news article, from our Kia archive, which dates back to the year 2000.
If in doubt check with your local Kia dealer as car prices and technical data will have changed since 2005.
