[ June 2, 2021   //   ]

A second lo lo container ship for P&O Ferries’ Zeebrugge-Hull route arrived on the Humber for the first time on 1 June.

The integrated ferry and logistics business has added the 650teu MV Freya to its schedule in response to rapidly growing demand.

Together with sister ship Elisabeth, she will double capacity on the route and increase the number of sailings in each direction every week to six.

Managing director of P&O Freight Ferries Services, Thorsten Runge, said: “Our customers will benefit from faster turnaround times, enabling them to exit the port as quickly as possible and continue their journeys on the excellent road links to the industrial hubs along the M62, M6 and M1 corridors.”
