RO/RO REMAINS THE BOTTLENECK FOR HEAVY GOODS

· New Europe > Asia service from Bremerhaven and Antwerp launched in February 2023

· Benefit from our own allocations and expertises in the field of Ro/Con, BreakBulk and project cargoes

Project cargo and „high & heavy“ goods account for a significant share of rolling cargo handling. But the capacities of the carriers are at their limits. With short transit times and reliable schedules, car and Ro/Ro carriers have always been a popular alternative for project shipments. But since last year, the capacities of the car carriers have become increasingly limited.

According to media reports (including Hansa‘s special issue on BREAKBULK EUROPE 2023), departures from Northwest Europe by the car carriers are fully booked eight to twelve weeks in advance – and this with an 11% growth forecast of high & heavy and heavy-lift cargo volumes this year alone.

 

TO GROUP OFFERS AN ALTERNATIVE WITH BAHRI‘S NEW EUROPE > ASIA SERVICE

As the General Agent for Bahri Line (the National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia) for Northern Europe, you can rely on our expertise and our own allocations on vessels. The advantages of using Bahri Line‘s Ro/Con vessels for your Ro/Ro, project, break bulk, heavy lift and container cargoes are obvious…

 

BAHRI’S RO/CON PARTICULARS

  • Entrance height: 6.80 metres
  • Ramp width: 7.80 metres
  • Ramp capacity: 250 tonnes
  • Two heavy lift cranes: 120 tonnes capacity each
  • Hatch cover opening: 26.80 x 12 metres
  • Container capacity on the weather deck: 300 TEUs
  • CEU capacity: up to 500

 

NO MATTER HOW LONG, HOW WIDE OR HOW HEAVY YOUR GOODS ARE, WE WILL GET THEM TO THEIR DESTINATION FASTER

The frequency of departures from Bremerhaven or Antwerp is currently around 40 days. By doubling the tonnage and purchasing two new vessels, Bahri says the frequency should improve to less than 30 days by 2024.
