Port Freeport is fully equipped to accommodate scalable roll on/off operations.
Our newest partner who specializes in roll on roll of cargo operations is Hoegh Autoliners. Additionally, Horizon Terminal Services, AMPORTS and Red Hook Terminals have now all established operations in the port as a result of this new global service. This carrier currently has weekly calls to Port Freeport and very frequently up to 7 vessels per month.
Port Freeport has improved about 60 Acres of property to enable Horizon Terminals (Hoegh's Terminal Operator) to stage new OEM exports and imports. Port Freeport has plans to increase the OEM Terminal's size, and during 2016, will commence improvements to an additional 50+ acres in order to increase the capability of our storage capacity. This new development will also be served by rail.
The RoRo vessels in this fleet have reinforced ramps and increased overhead clearance, allowing them to deliver high and heavy equipment as well as some project cargo on mafi trailers. Large cranes and construction equipment as well as containers and conventional breakbulk cargo have been arriving on these vessels, proving that their versatility to move all types of cargo is simply amazing.
Port Freeport has shown interest to participate in this segment of the shipping industry for some time, and we are grateful for our new partner who has placed their trust in us. We are certain additional carriers will soon see the full scale of our offerings and will chose us to be their partner in the future as well.
