#FreightFerry – Belfast-Birkenhead (Liverpool) freight-ferry Stena Hibernia, which has been in service for just over one year, has according to Stena Line attracted freight traffic despite the difficult Northern Ireland market, writes Jehan Ashmore.

The ro-ro freight ferry has a capacity for 12 drivers and 110 unaccompanied units representing an additional 1,680 lane metre capacity. The route is also served by a pair of ro-pax ferries Stena Lagan and Stena Mersey.

Stena Hibernia operates eight sailings per week and to a sailing schedule that has enabled customers to deliver on next-day orders.The service has also further developed the positions of the Port of Liverpool and Port of Belfast as freight hubs.

Following negotiations between Stena Line and Belfast Harbour, additional quay space is for the Victoria Terminals (VT1 and 2) and Holyhead so to improve the overall operating layouts of these ports.
