April 2 - Spliethoff has increased the frequency of its Cleveland-Europe Express (CEE) service between Antwerp and Cleveland from one to two sailings per month.

The service, which commenced in 2014, has a 14-day transit time.

Whilst the Port of Cleveland invested in cranes to speed up the loading and discharge of containers, cross-dock, storage and distribution solutions are now in place, which allow for heavier containers to be shipped to Cleveland. In addition, breakbulk cargoes, and project cargoes including heavy lifts and yachts are being carried on this service.

Also newly introduced for this year's schedule is a call at the port of Valleyfield offering a good connection with the Canadian hinterland and US East Coast destinations.
