CLdN increases frequency of the Zeebrugge-Santander Service

Mar 14, 2019   Supply Chain

At the end of September 2018 CLdN ro-ro introduced two direct sailings between the Port of Zeebrugge in Belgium and the Port of Santander in Spain offering the market efficient and reliable shipping solutions to and from the Iberian peninsula.

The trade proved to be an immediate success as increasingly high numbers of shipments have been recorded on weekly basis. Seeing the sound foundation, and the deployment of CLdN's brand new state-of-the-art ro-ro vessel m/v Laureline in their network, the company is now taking the next step in the development of the Spanish corridor in order to enhance the trade and the service customers better. 



CLdN announced that the number of sailings between the two ports will be increased from two to three departures per week in each direction starting March 17. 



CLdN will offer symmetrical sailings from both Santander and Zeebrugge on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, operated by modern ro-ro vessels which can accommodate a wide variety of cargo, ranging from trailers, containers and machinery to cars, breakbulk and project cargo. 


A spokesperson for CLdNsaid: ““It is very exciting to see the continuous positive progress on this trade which is supported by many of our much-valued customers who recognise the environmental and operational benefits of the short-sea solution versus the options by road. The importance of Zeebrugge as a main hub for further shipments to/from the Nordic countries, Ireland and the United Kingdom, has become even more significant, offering the market the full advantage of a well-organised Pan-European network. It clearly shows that CLdN increases its efforts regarding reducing road miles, accommodating higher weight specifications at attractive lead times.”
