December 31 - Atlantic Container Line is reported to be ready to order new ships in 2011 to replace its aging fleet of five ro-ro vessels operating between North America and North Europe.

Reports suggest that a design for the replacement ships will be finalised early in the year, with discussions beginning with shipyards soon after that.

HLPFI will bring you more information on the technical capabilities of the new ships, including their ability to carry over-dimensional cargoes, as we find out more.
