Cargoes up to 6.5 m heigh and 12 m wide can be handled; a heavy-duty stern ramp allows for cargoes weighing up to 375 tonnes to be loaded safely.

Höegh Trotter will begin its maiden voyage from Asia to Europe in mid-December. The ship will then call in Africa and Oceania before returning to East Asia.
