Stena Line today announced that it will add an additional freight-only vessel to its Rosslare to Cherbourg route from 4th January 2021. The Stena Foreteller sail alongside the Stena Horizon which already operates on the route, doubling the freight capacity as well as the frequency of sailings between Ireland and the France.
Stena Foreteller will provide an additional 3,000 lane metres of freight capacity per trip and can accommodate a mix of accompanied and unaccompanied traffic with onboard facilities for up to 12 freight drivers.
Niclas Mårtensson, CEO Stena Line said: “We have been listening carefully to feedback from our customers and it has become clear that there is demand for increased frequency on the Rosslare-Cherbourg service, the shortest direct crossing between Ireland and France.”
Earlier this year, the Stena Forteller provided refit cover for Irish Ferries on Dublin – Holyhead.
