Brake sailings open Great Lakes season

April 22 - Three recent sailings by Fednav from the port of Brake, Germany, to the North American Great Lakes opened the season for the shipping company's FALLine (Federal Atlantic Lakes Line) service.

During the northern hemisphere winter months from mid/late December to mid/late April, the Great Lakes are closed for large seagoing vessels due to maintenance work on the complex locks and waterways. 

From Brake, Fednav typically carries cargoes such as iron and steel products, project cargoes and wind power components. 

Fednav operates a fleet of 33 modern ships which are adapted to suit the flow of goods to and from the Great Lakes. Another 21 units will be delivered by 2018. 

In Brake, the Fednav service calls at the Niedersachsenkai, which is operated by J. Müller Group. The terminal covers an area of 150,000 sq m and is characterised by its particular suitability for general and project cargoes, as it has a special quay for over-dimensional components and is regularly used for assembly work.
