CLdN adds more ships to Ireland/Europe routes


European short-sea operator CLdN has chartered two additional ro ro vessels to increase sailings on its Zeebrugge/Rotterdam/Dublin routes from eight to ten in each direction per week. The line said the chartered


vessels would prepare the way for


the introduction of


further new dual-fuelled (LNG) newbuilds arriving in the fourth quarter of the year. CLdN will introduce the


additional sailings provisionally from mid-May; one is currently undergoing repairs and the other is being repositioned from the Med. It would increase Rotterdam


to Dublin sailings to five weekly and that chartering an additional vessel would allow it to deploy both vessels on the Irish routes in a combined ‘wedge’ schedule, to add frequency and capacity from both Zeebrugge.


Rotterdam Fourth ship for Dunkerque-Rosslare route


DFDS’s Ark Dania made its first call at the port of Dunkerque- Port on 9 April, en route from Rosslare in Ireland. The ro ro vessel, which has a capacity of 190 freight units, 12 cabins and space for 400 trade cars, will call at Dunkerque every Friday and Tuesday and will help develop the unaccompanied trailer trade. It is the fourth vessel to be


deployed on the service since its launch on 2 January and allows calls to be stepped up to eight


weekly arrivals and departures. The route provides carriers


and shippers with a direct, document-free journey for lorries between the Republic of Ireland and the European Union, implying less waiting time as well as the possibility of avoiding the customs procedures which now apply to transport via the British land bridge. Between the launch of the


service and the beginning of March the service carried 10,000 freight units.

Bullen though says he


welcomes fair competition and: “We are confident that the flexibility and resilience of our service will enable us to continue to grow volumes on the route. We have a modern new ferry joining the route and we look forward to welcoming our customers to enjoy the exciting new driver and passenger experience onboard.” He says that DFDS has enjoyed a very encouraging start to 2021,

with freight volumes on the Channel ahead of where they were in the same period last year. Although pre-Brexit and Christmas stockpiling at the end of 2020 initially affected volumes in January, the market has recovered strongly as the economy returns to growth and has seen a return to ‘normal’ traffic levels. The focus for the year is to build on the resilience of the freight business and grow in 2021. DFDS has also introduced


a new freight route between Ireland and France, operating from Rosslare to Dunkirk, and Bullen reports very strong demand here too. The Covid-19 pandemic has


though had a big impact on DFDS’s passenger business and numbers have been significantly lower than usual because of the travel restrictions imposed across the UK and Europe. Passenger volumes across all routes in March this year down 77% on March 2020. But there is

a silver lining: “This has allowed us to carry more freight on routes including our Dover to Calais and Dunkirk service, on the Newhaven-Dieppe route and on our Newcastle-Amsterdam service, by allowing us to maximise freight loads. We’re proud of the role our business has played in helping to keep essential goods flowing between the UK and Europe, growing our market share, and continuing to run our usual schedule while others were laying up ships.”

Business as usual for full- load specialist


Europa’s Continental Cargo Carriers (CCC) full- and part- load arm says that normal service has now resumed following Brexit-related challenges at the start of the year. General manager Carlo


Turner said that traffic was now increasing week on week with minimal delays. He added: “Volumes for


March are now back to pre- Covid levels and are continuing to increase. Brexit, as well as Covid-19 has brought us many


challenges, but we invested and adapted to ensure customers faced the least possible disruption.” CCC created a Continental


Flow delivered duty paid (DDP) service under which it acts as an EU global VAT representative for its customers. CCC operates a fleet of


270 trailers, with a 4000 m2 warehouse and employs a team in Belgium and the UK. It was acquired by Europa Worldwide Group in 2018 but is a wholly separate division.
