Editorial: Celebrating 75 years of shipping

The arrival of three giant Eco class ro-ro vessels enables our customers to grow with us in a more sustainable way and lower the CO2 footprint further. These hybrid green ro-ros are servicing our clients on our longest route, the Biscay route, and we therefore have been able to redeploy the vessels that used to sail on this route elsewhere and also rotate the existing fleet more efficiently.
