Arriving early on Monday morning, the Dutch freighter TIMCA was seen heading towards Greenock where she would load reels of paper for export to the USA. As usual, her first port of call on the far side of the Atlantic was to be Baltimore. TIMCA dates from 2006, when she was built in Poland for a subsidiary company of Spliethoff, a Dutch company which specialises in such cargoes.
