CLdN completes the acquisition of Seatruck Ferries
As announced on 20th September 2022, leading European RoRo ferry operator CLdN has today completed the agreement to acquire all shares in Seatruck Ferries Holding Ltd from Clipper Group of Denmark. This follows the approval of the proposed merger given by the Irish competition authority on 28 October 2022.
Florent Maes (CEO – CLdN) said: “We are excited to welcome the Seatruck colleagues into the CLdN family. By combining and leveraging on each other’s strengths, we will continue to improve the service for both Seatruck and CLdN customers. Through Seatruck’s long term presence in the ports of Heysham and Warrenpoint as well as in CLdN’s key hubs of Dublin and Liverpool, we expand the group’s network and we are determined to invest and add capacity to our shipping lanes which serve these ports. Seatruck’s imminent move to a terminal adjacent to CLdN in Dublin will offer our customers seamless transshipment opportunities from the start of 2023, allowing direct access to the group’s Iberian, Irish, UK and continental European markets.”
