Stena Line was forced to remove one freight ship from its Belfast hub because of COVID related drop in freight volumes.

Stena Line has now announced that it will charter SEATRUCK PANORAMA to help boost freight capacity on its Belfast to Liverpool and Belfast to Heysham routes.

Reason: increase in freight demand during summer and anticipated busy autumn.

SEATRUCK PANORAMA is expected to start service on September 2, and will make 10 sailings weekly between Belfast and Liverpool/Heysham.

The addition of Panorama on the Northern Ireland to England corridor will increase freight capacity by 28% and frequency will rise from 46 to 56 crossings weekly compared to the present

In January 2021, Stena Line will further boost freight capacity when it adds the newly built STENA EMBLA to its Belfast – Liverpool service.
