MIC Chairman on Steam Packet Rival
11th September, 2013
Ellan Vannin Line founder Captain Kurt Buchholz confirmed last week that the launch of a daily roll-on, roll off container freight service between Douglas and Heysham would not now take place until the later this year and possibly not until the spring.
He said negotiations were still underway over the purchase of a ro-ro container vessel from its current owner, which the Examiner has learned is Norwegian shipping line Nor Lines.
