Return of the triangle for CLdN

[ March 29, 2021   //   ]

Short-sea operator CLdN is increasing capacity and frequency on its service from Santander to Liverpool and Dublin to twice-weekly. Currently it is operating a weekly service out of Santander, calling Liverpool and Dublin separately, saying that it was forced to detach the respective services at the beginning of this year as a direct result of Brexit.

However, as CLdN is an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO), complying with strict customs and safety and security regimes, it is now in a position to combine intra-EU and non-EU sailings and will reintroduce the triangle trade, with the rotation Santander-Liverpool-Dublin, leaving the northern Spanish port on Saturday and Wednesday, arriving in Liverpool on Monday and Friday and subsequently calling Dublin on Tuesday and Saturday.

CLdN said the move would decrease turnaround times of customers’ equipment and give a robust service bypassing the UK landbridge, with its administrative burdens.
