Seatrade, based out of Antwerp, is now calling twice a week at Dover cargo terminal. The company has added the Zodiac service from the Caribbean in addition to the same operator’s Rayo Reefer Service from Ecuador and Peru.
The Swedish Stream made the first call on the service which, after calling in France, returns to Columbia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Honduras. The Rayo Reefer Service connects Puerto Bolivar, Guayaquil and Paita with Dover and France.
