In January last year CLdN augmented the frequency of its ro-ro service between the two ports to four per week and, towards the end of this month, it will introduce CATHERINE into the service. The vessel is well-suited to trailers and double-stacked containers on cassettes.


"The introduction CATHERINE links perfectly in with our long-term strategy to continue deploying larger vessels on the trade," stated CLdN.


In addition, by the end of February CLdN will take delivery of LAURELINE, the first of a series of four 5,400 lane/metre state-of-the-art ro-ro vessel,s which all will be delivered during 2019. Further details in regards to the deployment of these vessels will follow in the near future.

CLdN ro-ro offers four (departures ex Zeebrugge on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, and four departures per week ex Gothenburg on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Monday.


In Zeebrugge the vessels are handled by C.Ro Ports at its modern facilities at Albert II Dock, from where shipments are made to a wide range of other European ports such as Santander, Dublin, Purfleet and Killingholme.


A spokesperson for CLdN stated: “By introducing larger capacity on the Scandinavian corridor we remain on course enhancing the trade and meeting the expectations of the market and our customers. It also enables us also to carry more transhipment cargo.”
