April 5 - Transfennica Iberia (Spliethoff Group) has implemented a new maritime service that makes a direct weekly connection between the port of Bilbao, Spain and Tilbury, UK, sailing from Bilbao on Friday afternoon and reaching the British port on Sunda

This change in service rotation comes after Transfennica replaced two chartered vessels in January with two own con-ro vessels, with capacity to transport 195 semi-trailers, 12 drivers and 640 teu.

Kraftca and Trica can carry driver-unaccompanied trailers and containers, driver-accompanied tractor-trailer units, as well as out-of-gauge and heavy cargoes.

The service also calls in Zeebrugge, Belgium, after calling at Tilbury.
