Moondance Returns as Fredericia - Moss Service Ends

Photographs  Ian Collard 2009

MOONDANCE returned to Liverpool on Wednesday February 25, 2009. Following her very short lived spell sailing between Norway and Denmark on the route between Fredericia and Moss. The service was ended due to the present financial conditions the company issuing the following press release:

Seatruck RO/R0 Service Fredericia-Moss . Service on stand by

The financial crisis now also affects the traffic between Denmark and Norway. The dramatically reduced volumes have intensified the competitive situation in the market with reduced freight rates as a consequence.

The result for the newly established RO/RO service between Fredericia and Moss has been that the operators which prior to the commencement of the service expressed intentions to support the service have been forced to review their position.

The shipping line has therefore decided to suspend the service between Fredericia and Moss until further notice. The last sailing took place from Moss on 12/02-2009.

The shipping line will review the market development together with the customers and consider possible schedule enhancements to improve the service towards the customer needs.
