European short Sea Ro-Ro specialist CLdN Ro-Ro SA, who operates 30 modern Ro-Ro vessels, announced it will step up preparations for the end of the Brexit transitional phase on December 31, 2020, by introducing additional capacity on its UK routes. As from last week 25% extra capacity was added on both the Rotterdam -London, and Rotterdam – Humberside routes. In addition and from week 42, an extra vessel will be deployed and thus a third daily sailing will be added on the Zeebrugge – London route to serve the growing demand, according to the company.
Over the last months, CLdN has seen steady growth in customer demand for its reliable, low cost and Brexit -proof unaccompanied freight product. Shipping unaccompanied trailers, (tank) containers, finished vehicles or project cargo between its own ferry terminals provides a ‘one-stop-shop’ to get goods shipped across the North Sea without running the risk of disruption.
In the past few years, CLdN has invested heavily in a fleet of modern vessels with environmentally friendly credentials offering high capacities for freight crossing the North Sea, Irish Sea, and the Bay of Biscay. The company has maintained its regular sailing schedules on all routes throughout the difficult pandemic period.
With a network of short sea services, connecting Rotterdam (NL) and Zeebrugge (BE) to London (UK), Humberside (UK), Liverpool (UK), Dublin (IE), Cork (IE) as well as Santander, (ES), Porto (PT) Gothenburg (SE) and Esbjerg (DK), CLdN plays an essential part in the logistics of all types of goods, offering in excess of 130 sailings per week.
