    CLdN today announced the launch of new services between Rotterdam and Ireland.  CLdN has chartered two 962 TEU lift-on / lift-off (LoLo) cargo vessels (M/V Pavo J and M/V Andromeda J) that will ship container cargo between the recently acquired Distriport terminal in Rotterdam and Dublin and Cork.   The introduction of the new LoLo services will also enable an optimisation of CLdN’s roll-on / roll-off (RoRo) fleet deployment, thereby increasing capacity on the routes between Rotterdam and the UK.

  • Blockade Zeebrugge
    CLdN calls for resolution to Zeebrugge port blockade and offers alternative shipment possibilities through its Rotterdam port

    The continuing blockade of the roads leading to the port of Zeebrugge is placing severe strain on supply chains throughout Europe. The situation is particularly serious as it is preventing the flow of vital food and medical supplies through the port. CLdN calls on the authorities to find a swift resolution to this unsustainable situation.  CLdN is offering customers alternative shipment possibilities through its own Rotterdam terminal.

    CLdN to further expand Dublin services 

    CLdN today announced a further expansion of its Irish Sea services. This follows the decision by Dublin Port Company (DPC) to grant CLdN a license to use the port’s Terminal 5. The decision further expands CLdN’s capabilities in the port.     

    In September 2023, DPC called for proposals from interested ferry lines to service west coast English or Welsh ports out of Dublin following confirmation that P&O (which operated from Terminal 5 in Dublin Port) would exit the Dublin-Liverpool route by year end.

    CLdN to start new Teesport service from Zeebrugge/ Rotterdam and significantly expand capacity to Purfleet

    The Teesside service will initially consist of four round trip sailings per week, three from Zeebrugge and one from Rotterdam
    and will start on 18 March 2023. This expansion is driven by customer demand to have direct and reliable access for freight
    units to the North East of England, thereby bringing cargo closer to its final destination and avoiding road mileage and

    MV Delphine returns to service with wind propulsion system fitted

    The MV Delphine is a vessel with a cargo capacity of over 8,000 lane meters and transits between the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe. She is the largest and one of the most fuel-efficient short sea roll-on / roll-off (ro-ro) vessel operating in the world today with 28 grammes of CO2 emitted per tonne of cargo shipped per km travelled. With two 35mx5m rotor sails deployed, the ship will emit even less greenhouse gas going forward thanks to an emission reduction saving of up to 10%.
