Höegh boosts services to Australia

Höegh Autoliners will increase the frequency of its services from Europe to Australia to five sailings per month.

From November, the additional sailing will accommodate the growing demand from manufacturers of breakbulk and high and heavy cargoes, as well as the automotive sector, said Höegh.

The shipping line currently deploys the New Horizon Vessel series on its service to Oceania. These ships are capable of carrying up to 8,500 cars and are built to cater for larger breakbulk cargoes. They offer up to 6.5 m of free deck height, a ramp width of 12 m and a ramp capacity of 375 tonnes.
