- Having recently announced additional sailings on UK and Irish routes out of Zeebrugge, CLdN is taking the next step by increasing capacity and frequency on its Iberian service. The leading RoRo operator is pleased to announce a bi-weekly service calling both Liverpool and Dublin out of Santander as from week 14.
- 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.
Purfleet - June 12, 2020 | Adjacent to their terminal in Purfleet, C.RO Ports has taken a new car deck into operation. Counting six stories in total, the covered parking area has room for over 10.000 cars and vans. From Purfleet, the brand-new vehicles will be distributed to a network of dealerships in the country.
- CLdN introduced VALENTINE and CELANDINE on the Zeebrugge – Santander service, adding almost 40% to the total capacity between these two ports.
A bold move in the midst of a crisis from short sea freight operator CLdN has been announced, starting the first pure Ro-Ro service in a triangle trade between Santander (ES), Liverpool (UK) and Dublin (IE). With effect from week 25 2020, CLdN will operate one sailing per week from Santander to Liverpool, followed by calling Dublin. The schedule has been created very agile, enabling the vessel to make additional Landbridge calls between Liverpool and Dublin before returning to Santander.
