Seatruck Ferries’ volume across the three routes increased at just over 10% compared with an overall market growth of 3.9%.
Seatruck now operates 76 departures per week on their three Irish Sea routes:
- Heysham – Warrenpoint
- Heysham – Dublin
- Liverpool – Dublin
Seatruck believe that the worsening truck driver shortage is leading to a growth in unaccompanied trailer shipments. By shipping trailer only, from ports which reduce road mileage compared with the traditional transit through Wales or Scotland, operators can make significant door to door savings in what is an increasingly competitive logistics landscape, says Seatruck.
In the coming weeks a new £7m loading ramp will be installed at Heysham Port.
