New shortsea link for Cuxhaven

LD Seaplane has started a regular shortsea ro-ro shipping service connecting Nantes Saint-Nazaire in France and Cuxhaven, Germany.

 

The LD Seaplane vessel Ville de Bordeaux will operate on the service transporting aviation components, project cargo and automobiles.

“Cuxhaven has been able to demonstrate its strength through the efficient handling operations at the Cuxport terminal and thus illustrates once again the huge potential at the port. The pre-requisite for the successful expansion was and is still the excellent cooperation with the shipping agent, Herbert C. Meyer in Stade,” says Oliver Fuhljahn, head of automobile logistics at Cuxport.

Julien Brault, commercial manager at LD Seaplane, added: “The new route to France is also significant because it creates a link between the German offshore industry centre in Cuxhaven and the offshore wind industry in France. We believe there is a great deal of potential to expand this business.”

Ville de Bordeaux is 154.15 m long and 24 m wide. The ro-ro service will call at Cuxhaven every Thursday.

LD Seaplane is part of the French Louis Dreyfus Armateurs group.
