More capacity for Zeebrugge-Ireland run

The Port of Cork has confirmed the expansion by Samskip Container Line of its range of scheduled lift-on lift-off (LO-LO) services to mainland Europe. Samskip operates frequent short sea services between the European continent and Ireland. Three container vessels are operating services between Dublin, Cork, Belfast, Rotterdam and Zeebrugge. Two large 805 TEU Samskip container vessels will call to the Port of Cork: the Samskip Express and the Samskip Pioneer. The Samskip Express will rotate between Cork, Dublin, Rotterdam and Zeebrugge, connecting the Port of Cork with two well-positioned ports at the European Continent.
