Nowegean provider of Ro/Ro (Roll On/Roll Off) deep sea transportation services Höegh Autoliners announce an increased frequency in its service to Australia. Starting in November, the company will offer five sailing per month to Australia from Europe.

Previously, Höegh offered up to four regular sailing per month, and with the increased frequency, the company will strengthen its position in the region.

Thomas Ramdahl, Chief of Sales said: "To accommodate the growing demand from breakbulk, high and heavy and car manufacturers, we will increase our frequency to Oceania by offering our customers additional sailings from Europe."

Höegh Autoliners currently deploy the New Horizon Vessel series in the service to Oceania. These vessels are the largest PCTC vessels by capacity in the world capable of carrying up to 8500 cars.

Built to cater for larger breakbulk and high and heavy cargo, the vessels offers up to 6.5 meters of free deck height, 12 meters of ramp width and ramp capacity of 375 metric tonnes.

Thomas added: "With the New Horizon vessel design, we have added greater flexibility to our fleet and thus enhanced the service we offer our customers."
