Liner Services Giving You Worldwide Connections
This is one of the major advantages of the ro-ro terminal: two shipping lines (Suardiaz and LD Seaplane) provide scheduled shipping services departing from Montoir de Bretagne.
Suardiaz manages the maritime motorway between Montoir de Bretagne and Vigo, which operates three times a week, as well as a full Atlantic service to Zeebrugge in the north and to Tangiers in the south. The latter service is connected via Tangiers to Bursa in Turkey, to bring back vehicles built at that location.
LD Seaplane has put in place links to the Mediterranean (the Milk Run Med service to Tangiers, Tunis and Naples) and to the North Sea (the Milk Run North service to Hamburg). This second service has just been amalgamated with another service, so as to propose a scheduled transatlantic service to and from Mobile (Alabama, USA). From January 2021, this service will also take in Belfast, in Northern Ireland.
More Capacity to Accommodate You
The Montoir de Bretagne ro-ro terminal has seen some significant changes in recent years. On the maritime side of operations first of all, with the installation of new floating pontoons offering access for stern, side and stern three-quarter ramp vessels. These new improvements enable the ro-ro terminal to receive several vessels at the same time. The storage capacity in the paved areas has also been increased (40 hectares, with nearly 10 hectares in reserve). Imports of new vehicles and consignments of components for aircraft manufacturer Airbus form the main part of the throughput at the ro-ro terminal, but the facility also handles HGVs, unaccompanied trailers, automotive components or industrial heavy-lift cargo consignments (operations carried out by Somaloir and IDEA Logistique).
