Seatruck Ferries has signed a new 10-year agreement with Warrenpoint Port in Northern Ireland. The multi-million-pound deal further reinforces Seatruck Ferries commitment to a port that is seeing constantly growing volumes on a busy freight route.
Operating a twice daily service connecting Warrenpoint and Heysham, 2016 saw Seatruck complete 100,000 shipments in a year for the first time since it formed in 1996. Warrenpoint harbour has committed to provide additional terminal space to cope with this and future growth predictions, which will include a new loading ramp and upgraded terminal facilities.
“Warrenpoint is where the Seatruck story began and we are absolutely delighted to extend our agreement with the port and in turn our commitment to the local area,” said CEO Alistair Eagles.
“The wider financial benefits of having a successful port in this area should not be underestimated.”
The agreement helps Warrenpoint cement its position as the second busiest port in Northern Ireland for the volume of freight handled.
