CLdN Sets Up Gothenburg-Rotterdam RoRo Service
- Business & Finance
Luxembourg-based short sea roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) shipping company Compagnie Luxembourgeoise d’Navigation (CLdN) has introduced a new freight service between Gothenburg, Sweden, and Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
The company’s vessels will depart twice weekly from Logent Ports and Terminals at the Port of Gothenburg, bound for Rotterdam.
“Rotterdam is a highly important freight hub for many Swedish import and export companies. A further alternative means of reaching Rotterdam is now available,” Claes Sundmark, Vice President, Container, Ro-Ro and Rail at Gothenburg Port Authority, said.
With the new service, CLdN has five departures each week from the Logent Ports and Terminals’ Ro-Ro terminal in Gothenburg – two to Rotterdam and three to Belgium’s Zeebrugge.
“We will also be able to offer greater frequency between Gothenburg, Zeebrugge, Rotterdam and the Danish port of Hirtshals, which we began serving earlier this year,” Emil Holmgren, Line Representative at CLdN, said.
In March 2016, CLdN started a service between Denmark and the Port of Gothenburg for imports into Sweden targeting improved freight transport between Sweden, Norway, Iceland and the Faroe Islands.
