CLdN and Transfennica connect in Zeebrugge

Starting from 25 July 2024, Transfennica's Northern Baltic con-ro & break-bulk service will call at CLdN's Albert II terminal in the Port of Zeebrugge every other Thursday.

The connection in question links the Baltic seaports in Hanko, Kotka, Rauma, and Paldiski with the Port of Antwerp.

The companies will also share freight loading equipment to maximise transshipment efficiency.

"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," Gary Walker, CLdN RoRo's COO, commented.

Dirk Witteveen, Managing Director of Transfennica, added, "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."
