#AwardFinalist - Seatruck Ferries, the Irish Sea's only operator dedicated to ro-ro freight, have been selected as a finalist for 'Company of the Year' at next month’s 2016 Lloyd's List Global Awards, writes Jehan Ashmore.
The freight company, part of the Danish owned Clipper Group, has a network of three routes: Dublin-Liverpool, Dublin-Heysham and Warrenpoint-Heysham. The last route linking Northern Ireland and England is where Seatruck began operations twenty years ago in 1996.
The Lloyd's List Global Awards, are widely regarded as the ‘Oscars’ of the worldwide shipping industry, which are to take place in London at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich on the 28th September.
Also nominated for the Company of the Year award are CMA CGM, Hapag-Lloyd, Maersk Line, Pyxis Tankers and Waterfront Shipping Company.
In the first 6 months of 2016, Seatruck Ferries recorded Irish Sea freight growth of over just 18%, three times the market level of 5.8%. Strongest growth was achieved on the central corridor between Liverpool – Dublin, where in March was introduced a larger third ‘P’ Class freight vessel, Clipper Pace (1,850 lane metres).
