Since September 2018, CLDN Ro-Ro (Cobelfret) have been operating two direct sailings between Zeebrugge in Belgium and the port of Santander in Spain.
The trade proved to be an immediate success as increasingly high numbers of shipments have been recorded on weekly basis.
Seeing the sound foundation and the deployment of a brand new state-of-the-art ro-ro vessel m/v Laureline, CLdN are very pleased to announce an increase to three departures a week in each direction on the Zeebrugge <> Santander route, commencing Sunday 17/03/2019.
A spokesperson for CLdN commented:
"It is very exciting to see the continuous positive progress on this trade which is supported by many of our much-valued customers who recognize the environmental and operational benefits of the short-sea solution versus the options by road. The importance of Zeebrugge as a main hub for further shipments to/from the Nordic countries, Ireland and the United Kingdom, has become even more significant, offering the market the full advantage of a well-organized Pan-European network. It clearly shows that CLdN increases its efforts regarding reducing road miles, accommodating higher weight specifications at attractive lead times."
By offering a higher frequency of sailings not only will the overall capacity be considerably increased, but it will also allow customers to rotate their units in a faster and more efficient way, resulting in improved transit times and further cost optimisation.
