London Medway, part of the Peel Ports Group, has had its busiest ever month for unaccompanied freight using a cargo only ro-ro ferry service between the UK and France.
The Sheerness-Calais service which is run by DFDS (also Rosslare Europort-Dunkirk) has carried more than 3,981 trailers on its vessels across the channel in April 2022.

Included in the ships sold was one of the original ships that helped to establish Star Cruises as Asia’s first modern cruise brand as well as two transitional cruise ships from the history of Norwegian Cruise Line and the North American cruise business. The fourth ship had been retired a few years ago and was being used for accommodations at Genting’s MV Werften shipyard in Germany. Only one cruise ship from Star Cruises, a smaller yacht-style cruise ship appears to have been retained.
The three Asian cruise ships that were sold, Star Pisces, SuperStar Aquarius, and SuperStar Gemini are all currently laid up in Penang, Malaysia. Only the Star Pisces had briefly returned to service after the pause due to the pandemic starting short cruises from Penang …
