P&O Ferries Zeebrugge: arrival of second crane + start of Finnlines service to Rosslare

By | 2022 Newsletter week 30 | No Comments

P&O Ferries has doubled its capacity to load and unload cargo at its Zeebrugge hub with the arrival of a second lift-on, lift-off crane.

The expansion is set to streamline the transportation of freight, boosting productivity and enhancing capacity to service vitally important trade routes for UK exporters and trading partners.

The arrival of a second crane will also enable P&O Ferries to upgrade departure frequency on its in-demand Hull to Zeebrugge Lo-Lo route, with an increase to six weekly sailings on a fixed schedule.

July 23th also saw the start of the Finnlines/Grimaldi Group service to Rosslare, with roro FINNPULP. The vessel is handled on the P&O Ferries terminal in Zeebrugge, just as was the Grimaldi service from Zeebrugge to Cork with EUROCARGO BARI. The latter does no longer call at Zeebrugge.

Grimaldi Adds Zeebrugge to its Belgium – Ireland Service

  • 2/w Belgium — Ireland (Cork) ­— Belgium
  • Week schedule: Antwerp-Zeebrugge-Cork-Zeebrugge-Cork-Zeebrugge-Antwerp
  • Ship: EUROCARGO BARI: 3,850 lane metres + 200 cars
  • Start of cooperation with P&O Ferries

At the beginning of May, Grimaldi started a twice-weekly roro service between Antwerp and Cork, with EUROCARGO BARI as route vessel.

Now, since Saturday 24 July, the ship calls twice a week in Zeebrugge, and once a week in Antwerp.

Zeebrugge was already connected with Cork, by the service from CLdN.

Interesting is the cooperation between Grimaldi and P&O Ferries.

In the port of Zeebrugge, the Grimaldi ship calls at the terminal of P&O Ferries.

The press release states that, “the cooperation with P&O Ferries will be extended to commercial activity as well.”
