Nordana goes back to Libya

September 8 - Nordana has restarted its regular direct ro-ro service from the US Gulf and East Coast into Libya, which has been suspended since February due to the unrest in the country.

With official sanctions now lifted, and improved security in the region, Nordana has decided to resume service. "The increasing stabilisation in the Eastern part of Libya has now reached a stage where we have found it safe for the crew, vessel and cargo to re-establish the service and start accepting cargo for Benghazi on a regular basis. As the situation improves other ports in Libya will be added" said René Sivertsen, line manager Nordana.

In addition to US exports, cargo from Spain, Italy, Egypt and Turkey are accepted on the regular three-weekly service, which apart from rolling stock, accommodates breakbulk including oversize, heavy lift and containers on fully self-sustained fleet.

The first sailing from the USA will be Skanderborg loading Houston September 19, then Jacksonville (23rd), Savannah (24th) and Baltimore (28th). This will be followed by Vegaland from Houston on October 10, Savannah (15th) and Baltimore (18th).
