Presently ARRC operates a fleet of six multipurpose vessels on its transatlantic services. Three LORO vessels are employed on the Balt-Atlantic service, connecting St. Petersburg, Russia with the U.S. East Coast via the port of Baltimore; and three multipurpose LOLO vessels with heavy lift capacity are employed on Balt-Gulf service, which connects St Petersburg and Antwerp with ports of Houston, New Orleans and Tampa on the U.S. Gulf.
