Shortsea container carrier A2B-online, which operates container services between the Netherlands and the UK, has just purchased the 508 teu Nor Feeder from Norway’s Arriva Shipping. The ship has been renamed A2B Spirit and becomes the fifth ship bought by the Dutch outfit in the last three years, according to Alphaliner. It also has two ships on charter.
A2B-online has been operating since 2013 a set of shortsea container services connecting the Dutch port of Moerdijk to the South of Rotterdam to Thamesport, Immingham, Teesport and Blyth in the UK. The carrier is part of a wider group with activities in road haulage and logistics.
