ATLANTIC RO-RO CARRIERS, INC. (“ARRC”) TO EXPAND SERVICE
On behalf of Atlantic Ro-Ro Carriers we are pleased to announce the expansion of our Trans-Atlantic service to include regular calls to the Port of New York/New Jersey.
Since 1995 Atlantic Ro-Ro Carrier’s has grown its USA operation to 8 specialized sistership vessels and frequency of up to 3 calls per month to the ports of Baltimore, New Orleans and Houston. This was only accomplished with the support of our customers and with their encouragement we are progressing to the next step.
The first sailing between the port of St. Petersburg and New York/New Jersey shall commence a bi-weekly service in June 2011. The vessels will be multi-purpose ships with capability of handling containers, project cargo, vehicles, ro-ro and break-bulk. A heavy concentration shall be on the container market and this shall be the only direct all water service between Russia and New York, by-passing the traditional St. Petersburg/ Europe/ USA transshipment services and will cut the transit time in half.
Over the past 15 years, ARRC has established a knowledgeable and professional staff as well as seasoned senior management team, all well familiar with the Russian and US markets. With our own offices in St. Petersburg, Moscow, Montreal, New Jersey and Houston, Atlantic Ro-Ro Carriers offers a full range of services on both sides of the Atlantic including inland delivery by rail, truck, barge, containerization, packaging and tailor-made customer service adapted to each and every shipper.
Further information on vessels, schedules and terminals shall be forthcoming shortly.
