Ro-ro operator CLdN is offering additional capacity and sailings on its Irish and UK routes in response to increased demand for its services.

CLdN’s currently deploys the 8,000 lane metre ro-ro vessel Celine on its Zeebrugge-Dublin route.

The ro-ro ship Cadena 3, formerly named Massimo Mura, is returning to CLdN’s line-up after being chartered out to Tirrenia. This has enabled the company to increase the frequency of its Zeebrugge-Dublin service to three sailings per week.

An additional connection will be added to the Zeebrugge-Killingholme route, bringing the total number of sailings to seven per week. CLdN will also add a weekend sailing to the Zeebrugge-Purfleet route, allowing customers to benefit from 12 sailings per week.

CLdN said that it would continue to add capacity and increase its sailing frequencies where necessary.

Further still, two 5,000 lane metre newbuild ships will be delivered from Hyundai shipyard later this year.
