Ro-Ro vessel Rotor Sail installation estimated to achieve a 10% reduction of carbon emissions
On February 1, CLdN ro-ro signed a contract with Hyundai Mipo Dockyards for two hybrid 8,000 lane meter ro-ro vessels. The order forms part of CLdN’s long term growth plans and further strengthens its current role as greenest ro-ro operator in North-Western Europe. Both vessels will be delivered in the first half of 2025.
- CLdN and DFDS enter into a Space Charter Agreement (SCA) to increase frequency and capacity on the Rotterdam - Humber route
Reacting to customer demand to provide more capacity, higher frequency and earlier arrivals into the UK, CLdN are pleased to announce the introduction of an additional six sailings per week each way on the Rotterdam - Humber service, increasing the offering to twelve sailings per week in each direction.
At CLdN we walk the talk and wish to inspire.
You may not yet know this, but we are proud to say that CLdN RoRo is the top performer amongst its ro-ro shipping peers in Northwest Europe for CO2 emissions per tonne of freight carried.
- Having overcome the first two challenging months in the post - Brexit era, CLdN is pleased to be able to offer increased shipping capacity by the introduction of additional sailings on its Irish and UK routes.
CLdN very much welcomes the recently closed Brexit deal, bringing relief to our customers, as tariff- and quota-free trade of goods between the EU and the UK seems to be safeguarded.
However, there should be no misunderstanding within the market that despite the trade deal customs formalities will stay in place.
We are stepping up our Brexit preparations by introducing additional capacity in our 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 onwards, an extra vessel will be deployed to service a third sailing daily sailing between Zeebrugge and London.
We have taken another step in our Brexit preparations with the introduction of an additional pure ro-ro service on a triangle trade between Porto, Dublin and Liverpool. With effect from week 37, 2020, CLdN Ro-Ro is operating one sailing per week from Porto to Dublin, followed by a call in the Port of Liverpool.
This new offering will provide a very efficient solution to the alternatives, cutting down on excessive road and sea miles for the trailer business especially, by following the shortest, most direct route and avoiding channel and road trips.
