Tundraland employed outside the Baltic

Wallenius SOL has chartered the ro-ro ship to CLdN, which, in turn, put her on the company's network serving Belgium, the Netherlands, and England on 13 February 2023.

The GT 23k, 190.8 by 26.4 m, 2007-built vessel offers 2,774 lane metres (lm) of capacity and is suitable for carrying SECUs.

The charter results from Wallenius SOL's relatively recent deployment of its new flagships of the Enabler class, each offering 6,442 lm.

"We saw an opportunity to optimise our liner traffic, assessing a more cautious growth in 2023 than previously planned for," Ragnar Johansson, Wallenius SOL's CEO, commented.

Gary Walker, COO at CLdN RoRo, in turn said, "We have seen a significant increase in demand for CLdN's unaccompanied freight and multi-modal logistics solutions. This charter provides an agile response to customer demand and will enable CLdN to explore new possibilities linking mainland Europe [Rotterdam & Zeebrugge] with destinations in eastern England [a.o., Tilbury]."
