CLdN establishes Baltic connection with Transfennica

Ro-roCLdN and Transfennica announced a connection of their shipping services in Zeebrugge to provide customers with broader connections through Northern and Western Europe. Transfennica’s Northern Baltic service between Antwerp and the ports of Hanko, Kotka, Rauma (Finland) and Paldiski (Estonia) will call at CLdN’s Albert II terminal in Zeebrugge every other Thursday enabling the exchange of northbound and southbound cargo. The first call is scheduled for Thursday 25 July.

The combination will enable the transshipment of containers, tank containers, trailers, reefers, automotive units, self-drives, breakbulk and other special cargo such as mobile machinery. It will provide connectivity between the furthest reaches of Northern and Western Europe – Iberia, Ireland, the UK, Scandinavia and the Northern Baltics. Both companies will share freight loading equipment, thereby maximizing the efficiency of each transshipment. 

Gary Walker, Chief Operating Officer of CLdN RoRo, said: “This combination is an innovative and collaborative way to provide an even broader service and reach for our customers. Compared to long distance road transport it offers a reduced administrative and permitting burden and a significantly reduced CO2 footprint. We are looking forward to co-operating with Transfennica and to further developing our respective businesses.”  

Dirk Witteveen, Managing Director of Transfennica Ltd said: “The extension?of our network with the ports serviced by CLdN in the UK, Ireland, and Iberia will equip our customers with optimal solutions in the European short sea sector. Both companies share a strong customer-oriented approach, and we believe this cooperation will benefit existing and new customers from both companies.”  

Bookings should continue to be made with the respective company for the time being.
