Break-bulk line beats the deep freeze

[ October 27, 2015   //   ]

Break-bulk shipping line Spliethoff is introducing a twice-monthly winter sailing to North America between Antwerp/Zeebrugge and Baltimore. The summer service operates to the Great Lakes but these freeze over in winter. There will be a connecting rail service from Baltimore to Cleveland, Ohio.
As soon as the Great Lakes unfreeze in 2016, normally early spring, Spliethoff will offer direct calls in Valleyfield in Montreal, Canada and Cleveland, Ohio.
The terminal in Cleveland is now investing in shore cranes, and a new warehouse will be completed offering cross docking and storage options.
