Vroon’s Suzuka Express Starts Working for RVC Shipping

Dutch shipping company Vroon entered recently into a three-to-six time charter deal with Dubai-based RVC Shipping for Suzuka Express, a car carrier.

The 3,930 CEU vessel is one of two 2010-built car carriers in Vroon’s fleet.

Flying the flag of Panama, the 43,810 GT car carrier features a length of 180 meters and a width of 30 meters.

Working with Suzuka Express, RVC has launched the RVC Line, a car-carrier service from Mumbai to the Persian Gulf. It is said to be the first dedicated pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) service catering for Indian car manufacturers.

Since starting its charter in mid-June, Suzuka Express has made regular port calls to Mumbai, Jebel Ali, Shuwaikh and Umm Qasr. The transported cargo has consisted mainly of trucks and busses.
