TransFighter is 180 meters long and has a deadweight of almost 19,000 tons. The ship has a container capacity of 830 TEU - most of it on weather deck in addition to other cargo below deck. The RoRo decks have a capacity of 850 lane meters and can thus take about 60 unaccompanied semi-trailers. Cargo can be handled over the Ro-Ro ramp, through the side doors and through the folding hatches on deck.
- TransFighter is twice the size of our largest vessel today, says Tore Knudsen (pictured), Director of Shipping Division of Sea-Cargo to us. - She really represents economy of scale and represents a great opportunity for our customers, he adds.
Rotterdam, where Sea-Cargo has a terminal, has become very central in the new schedules. Sea-Cargo offers three weekly departures from there to Norway with large capacity for ro-ro, container and project cargo. In Norway, the Port of Karmsund has become a hub for Western Norway.
TransFighter will trade in a fixed fortnightly route (see route map below) from Sheerness, close to London, via Rotterdam, Esbjerg and Tananger to Skogn, close to Trondheim, at its northernmost point. Southbound, TransFighter transports forest products from Skogn and aluminium from Sunndalsøra. TransFighter sails in service with Ahtela and weekly frequency is offered. Ahtela is, however, not calling on Sheerness and Skogn. Both ships are open for northbound RoRo, container and project cargo.
In addition Rotterdam is served twice a week by two other ships, Connector and Trans Carrier, in weekly round trips. Connector sails from Rotterdam on Tuesday and to Tananger and Odda, where it turns and goes via Karmsund and Tananger to Immingham and then back to Rotterdam. Trans Carrier departs from Rotterdam on Friday and serves Tananger and Bergen. Southbound she returns via Karmsund and Tananger to Rotterdam.
