Yes - that's correct Roland, MSC Cobalto is TC in from Ignazio Messina and is a conro vessel rather than pure ro-ro

Hi All,
Understand MSC started a roro service Europe / West Africa with MSC Immacolata and MSC Cristiana in 2018.
Guess these ships have been replaced by larger units recently like MSC COBALTO which I trust are in T/C.

Hi Bernd,

It is correct. MSC Maria is not a full ro-ro. She has conventional holds and cranes. The ro-ro ramp is for access to the tweendeck only.

MSc Maria ex Germania Imo 9067544

Hi Bob, it's MSC Bridge - ex Ark Forwarder. The only ro-ro MSC has in their fleet
