CLdN ramps up capacity between mainland and UK
PRESS RELEASE – CLdN is ramping up preparations for the end of the Brexit transitional phase on 31 December 2020 by introducing additional capacity on its UK routes. As from last week, 25% extra capacity was added on both the Rotterdam to London and Rotterdam to Humberside routes.
In addition, an extra vessel will be deployed and thus a third daily sailing will be added on the Zeebrugge to London route to serve the growing demand staring per week 42.
Over the last months, CLdN has seen steady growth in customer demand for its 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, the company states.
In the past few years, the ro/ro carrier has invested heavily in a fleet of modern vessels with high capacities for freight crossing the North Sea, Irish Sea and Bay of Biscay. The company has also maintained its regular sailing schedules on all routes throughout the Covid-period.
CLdN offers frequent shortsea 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).
