World's Largest Pure Car and Truck Carrier Enters Service

Höegh Autoliners took delivery of Höegh Target, the world’s largest Pure Car and Truck Carrier (PCTC) with a deck space of 71,400 square meters and carrying capacity of 8,500 car equivalent units.

Höegh Target is the first in a series of six Post Panamax vessels under the company’s New Horizon design. The remaining five PCTCs in the series are expected for delivery throughout the next 18 months.

The vessel has a higher door opening than Höegh Autoliners’ current vessels, enabling cargo up to 6.5 metres high and 12 metres wide to be loaded.

Extra ramp strength allows for cargo weighing up to 375 tonnes to be loaded over the stern ramp and 22 tonnes over the side ramp.

Höegh Target will service East Asia – Europe trade.
