New service for project cargo to the Arctic Ocean
The port of Antwerp informs about new service for project cargo to the Arctic Ocean.
The Russian Arctic Shipping Company (ASCO) operates between the port of Antwerp and the Arctic region of Russia. Its ice-reinforced vessels with a capacity of 7,000 to 12,000 tonnes will mainly carry project cargo.
The company operates six vessels, enabling it to offer a monthly rotation. From Antwerp the ships travel via the Baltic (calling at among others St. Petersburg and Ust Luga) and then on the more northerly Russian ports such as Archangel, Sabetta, Murmansk and Nova Zemla. The agent for this service is Seabow, specialising in breakbulk and ro/ro with the emphasis on Russia.
