Antwerp welcomes Fednav first

November 18 - Fednav's next-generation vessel Federal Bering has made its maiden call at the Port of Antwerp.

Best known in Antwerp for its FALLine liner service from Europe to the Great Lakes, Fednav currently has a newbuilding programme of 19 new handysize lakers, designed for the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway System, which will be delivered between 2015 and 2018.

Built at the Oshima shipyard in Japan, Federal Bering and its sisterships have box-shaped holds in order to facilitate the handling of general cargo.

"By continuing to expand our fleet and operations, our fleet will be one of the most modern, efficient, and environmentally friendly trading between Europe and North America, especially in the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway System," said Etienne De Vel, commercial manager of European operations at Fednav.

On the vessel's maiden voyage, Federal Bering will depart the Port of Antwerp carrying steel products and project cargo on its way to Chicago and Burns Harbor, Indiana.
