Short-sea roll-on/roll-off company CLdN Ro-Ro is expanding its Irish service following the arrival of new build vessels to the fleet.

The service is being improved with two Conro-class vessel, according to CLdN.

The company said it would deploy the vessels to operate on the direct Rotterdam-Dublin trade as of February 26, 2019, offering an increase from three to four sailings in each direction. The company noted it was increasing capacity at a time when Brexit uncertainty is a major feature in clients planning.

Three of the sailings will be ro-ro vessels, departing from Rotterdam on a Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and from Dublin Thursday, Saturday and Monday. In addition one lo-lo vessel will sail ex Rotterdam on Saturday and ex Dublin on Tuesday.

“These further developments are in line with CLdN’s longterm strategy, supported by substantial investments in both terminals and fleet,” a spokesperson for CLdN Ro-Ro SA stated.

The European short-sea ro-ro services provider operates 27 vessels, with 125 sailings per week. The company is also scheduled to welcome the South Korea-built M/V Laureline, the first of a series of four new ro-ro vessels to be built for the company. Laureline was delivered to CLdN Ro-Ro in Ulsan, South Korea, in January this year.
