'Galloway Express' is the first of 4 livestock carriers being constructed at the Cosco Shipyard in Guangdong for Vroon. The remaining three vessels are scheduled for delivery later this year and early in 2014.

These livestock carriers are next‑generation livestock vessels, boasting a cargo capacity of approximately 4,500 sqm and a cruising range of around 18,000 nm. They are fitted with animal-welfare facilities exceeding Australian (AMSA) regulations and incorporate a revolutionary bow design that will ensure fuel savings while maintaining high speeds and maximum comfort for cargo and crew.

Galloway Express will leave the shipyard later this week. She will operate for one of the major Australian livestock exporters under a tailor-made charter agreement.

Livestock Express B.V., a Vroon Company located in Breskens, the Netherlands, is the world's biggest independent seaborne livestock carrier with 50 years' experience on a worldwide basis. The dedicated fleet of vessels operates with highly qualified crew, in line with the stringent international rules and regulations for transportation of animals.
