IRISH SEA: Freight timings changed

Stena Line has adjusted the timetables of two vessels on its Irish Sea services following feedback from freight operators. Ro-pax ferry Stena Adventurer (2003/43,532gt), running on the Central Corridor between Dublin Port and Holyhead, now departs from Ireland at 2030 instead of 2115 on Sundays giving a 45 minutes earlier Monday arrival at the Anglesey port to assist hauliers making time sensitive morning deliveries.

On the Birkenhead-Belfast route, weekly services by freight ro-ro Stena Hibernia (1996/13,017gt) are starting with a 1500 departure from Northern Ireland on Mondays instead of the previous 0300 Tuesday sailing from the Mersey, again at the request of hauliers. The 1,680 lane meter Stena Hibernia, with accommodation for 12 drivers, joined the route in November 2013 to complement the 2005-built ro-pax sisters Stena Lagan and Stena Mersey with increased freight demand.
