Delegates from the Flemish government visited Dublin Port Company to discuss the importance of direct shipping routes to Europe and preparations in the lead-up to Brexit.

Such preparations include the launch of the world’s largest roll on-roll off ship Celine and her sister ship MV Laureline who made her maiden voyage from Dublin Port last March.
