ARRC Expands Service to Include Europe



Atlantic Ro-Ro Carriers today announced it has added Europe via the Port of Antwerp to its regular transatlantic service to the U.S. Gulf. Its Baltic Mercur II will make its maiden voyage from Antwerp this Friday [22 May]. ARRC made its announcement on the opening day of Breakbulk Europe 2015 to a record crowd of more than 7,000 at the Antwerp Expo.

ARRC has been operating as the only direct transatlantic MPP carrier between St. Petersburg, Russia, and the U.S. for the past 20 years. With a mixed fleet of LORO and LOLO vessels, the company is responsible for moving almost half a million tons of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, thousands of units of specialized equipment for the oil & gas, mining, construction and agricultural sectors, as well as thousands of TEUs and FEUs for various industries in both directions annually.

The service expansion coincides with the ARRC’s fleet upgrade initiative. Starting in 2014 and continuing through 2016, ARRC and the CISN Shipping Group intend to replace 75 percent of their fleet and upgrade their tonnage with modern (built from 2003 to 2011), 30,000-deadweight-ton MPP vessels with lifting capacities up to 200 tons. ARRC intends to run four such upgraded vessels on the Baltic – Continent – U.S. Gulf Service.

The service will be offered with monthly frequency and will be open to general breakbulk, metals and steel cargoes, oversized and heavy equipment, as well as containers. The service will be supported by European agency network, led by Ernst Glaessel Hamburg and backed by local agency services of Neptumar NV in Antwerp and Neptumar BV in Rotterdam.

M.V. Warnow Venus and Warnow Sun are joining ARRC’s transatlantic service

Spring is in the air and our fleet upgrade program and service expansion plan are pushing forward with full speed with the welcoming of two new vessels into ARRC’s fold. M.V. Warnow Venus (2012 built) and M.V. Warnow Sun (2010 built) will be joining ARRC fleet as of end of March / beginning of April respectively in St. Petersburg. The vessels will be added to our regular sailing schedule and will be servicing the trade lane between St. Petersburg Russia, North West Continental Europe and the United States EC and Gulf ports.

Both vessels are modern 33,227 deadweight tons multi-purpose (MPP) dry cargo ships. Similarly to all our fleet, these vessels are suitable for carriage of break bulk, project, bulk and containerized cargo. The vessels are geared with 4 electro hydraulic single deck cranes – 60mt each combinable above hatch 2/3/4 to 110 mts by means of a traverse beam location center. With a container capacity of 1,158 TEUs per vessel they will also provide a significant boost to our container program.



The additional carrying ability provided by the new additions would allow us to restructure and streamline our sailing schedule dedicating 3 Astrakhan type vessels on a St. Petersburg – USA EC loop and 4 x 30,000 + deadweight MPP to a USA and Mexican Gulf service. These changes will also be reflected in the new format of our sailing schedule which will be released shortly.

With sincere appreciation for your continued support.

M.V. San Pablo to join ARRC’s transatlantic service



As a part of our fleet upgrade program and service expansion plan, we are excited to announce that M.V. San Pablo will be joining ARRC fleet as of this June in St Petersburg. Upon delivery, the vessel will be added to our regular sailing schedule and will be servicing the trade lane between St. Petersburg Russia, North West Continental Europe and the United States EC and Gulf ports.

M.V. San Pablo is a year 2003 built modern 30,500 deadweight tons multi-purpose (MPP) tween deck vessel. She is an exact sister-ship of mv Antonio, which will be joining ARRC fleet shortly this month in Houston. Similarly to the Astrakhan type fleet, these vessels are suitable for carriage of break bulk, project, bulk and containerized cargo. The vessel is geared with 2 x 50mt lifting capacity and 2 x 100mt lifting capacity cranes, offering max lifting capacity of 200mts when used in tandem.

With additional carrying ability provided by M.V. San Pablo, we intend to increase the frequency of sailings to and from St. Petersburg and extend service to a wide range of European originating cargo as well as for consignments moving from the US and Mexican Gulf to Northern Europe and the Baltic.

We thank you for your continuous support as we continue to work toward improving our service and expanding our reach.
 

May 2014 - Announcement M/V ANTONIO

Announcement M/V ANTONIO



As ARRC celebrates our 20th year in the Russian-USA trade, it was reiterated that our commitment in this market would be evidenced by a few key issues.

First, in March of this year, we moved our staff (38) from the previous location in St. Petersburg that we occupied for the last 16 years, to our new facility in the historic building that was completely renovated recently. This facility is located at the Port of St. Petersburg and gives our customers closer access to Baltic Customs and facilities that will assist in expediting and release of cargo.

Second, our software systems have been completely updated to make access for compliance for our customers much easier in all countries of operation.

While recently many have had hesitations on the Russian market, as promised, we are proceeding with adding additional upgraded vessels (“Stage 1)” as well as working on the ordering of new buildings (“Stage 2”) toward the end of 2014.

For starters, we are adding to our normal schedule the vessel M/V Antonio, a 32,000 GT, two cranes with combined lifting capacity of 200 MT and an increased container capacity over our present tonnage. Similar to our Astrakhan type fleet, this vessel is suitable for carriage of break-bulk, project, bulk and containerized cargo. This also will allow ARRC to extend and increase the frequency of sailings to and from St. Petersburg a wider range of European originating cargo as well as cargo moving from the U.S. and Mexican Gulf to Northern Europe and the Baltic.

M/V Antonio will make its maiden ARRC voyage from Houston the first week of June and she shall be included in our normal weekly sailing schedule.
