Höegh Autoliners announced earlier today an increased frequency in its service to Australia. Starting in November, the company will offer five sailings per month to Australia from Europe.
Previously, Höegh offered up to four regular sailings per month, and with the increased frequency, the company will strengthen its position in the region.
Thomas Ramdahl, Chief of Sales says, ”To accommodate the growing demand from breakbulk, high and heavy and car manufacturers, we will increase our frequency to Oceania by offering our customers additional sailings from Europe.”
Höegh Autoliners currently deploy the New Horizon Vessel series in the service to Oceania. These vessels are the largest PCTC vessels by capacity in the world capable of carrying up to 8500 cars. Built to cater for larger breakbulk and high and heavy cargo, the vessels offers up to 6.5 metres of free deck height, 12 metres of ramp width and ramp capacity of 375 metric tonnes.
Thomas adds, “With the New Horizon vessel design, we have added greater flexibility to our fleet and thus enhanced the service we offer our customers.”
