Stena Line and Anglesey County Council announce bid to bring Freeport to North Wales

By | 2022 Newsletter week 47 | No Comments

Stena Line and Anglesey County Council have announced their intention to submit a major freeport bid.

Stena Line is pledging a major foreign investment in Holyhead Port, which is the second largest roro port in the country and an international gateway to Ireland, via the Irish Sea and an integral part of the “land bridge” between Britain and the EU.

If successful, the bid is predicted to return Holyhead to pre-Brexit levels of trade and cement the area as a hub for innovation in trade and clean energy, with industry-leading initiatives along its coastline driving the UK towards its net zero objectives.

The formal bid will be submitted next week to the UK and Welsh Governments.

Baleària Caribbean Resumes Ferry Service From Fort Lauderdale

Baleària Caribbean relaunched voyages to Bimini from Port Everglades on February 10.
Its sailings to Freeport, Grand Bahama began again Thursday 11.

One-day ferry services do not need to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) guidelines for recreational cruise lines. Therefore, Baleària was able to transport recreational passengers from South Florida to the Caribbean for the first time since the company paused operations March 2020, nearly a full year ago.
