As one of the world's largest operators in the rolling stock and vehicle transportation segment, Höegh has made no secret of its desire to increase its presence in the over-dimensional and heavy project cargo sector.
The line's first vessel, Höegh Bangkok, is scheduled to arrive at the Union Pier Terminal on January 29.
"Höegh is a highly respected name in the international shipping industry," said Jim Newsome, president & CEO of the South Carolina State Ports Authority (SCSPA). "The entire maritime community is pleased to welcome Höegh back to the Port of Charleston."
Höegh's Middle East service offers extensive port coverage, reaching from Mediterranean ports, into the Red Sea and to the Persian Gulf and India. Transshipment onto other Höegh vessels affords access into other ports in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
Höegh operates approximately 70 vessels across the globe, managed from a worldwide network of 31 offices in four regions. Its customers include global manufacturers of new cars, heavy machinery and rolling goods.
