Stena LIne is adding extra freight capcacity to the Rotterdam – Harwich route, by using larger ships.
As a result, the overall freight capacity of the route will increase by approximately 20%.
There has been a significant investment program in Europoort, Rotterdam, to ensure it develops into a strong multipurpose freight transport hub. Europoort is also developing as an important rail freight connection point to and from the UK.
The Trade Director at Stena Line North Sea said: “…. We have seen a strong growth in the transport market to the UK over the past several years and we are currently trading at very high utilisation on this route. This has been further fuelled by freight volumes arriving to Europoort by train.”
