Deep Sea Services
Höegh Autoliners operates a global network of deep sea trades with Pure Car and Truck Carrier (PCTC) vessels. When transporting your cargo with one of our vessels you can be confident that we take the best care of it.
All of our cargo handling personnel are well trained and competent to take care of all types of cargo that can be carried on board Pure Car and Truck Carrier (PCTC) vessels. We have also developed procedures and best practices for cargo handling, to minimise the risk of damage. When you leave your vehicle in our hands, you can trust that it will be well taken care of.
Each cargo is different and it requires expertise to ensure it receives the correct handling for a safe journey across the ocean. Höegh Autoliners was one of the pioneers when deep sea transportation of cars started in the late 1960's and we have across 50 years in this industry developed a long experience in handling rolling cargo of all types. When cargo does not roll by itself, we have the solution for that as well; using our roll trailers to pull it on board the vessel.
With us, all cargo travels below deck so you do not have to worry about corrosion which can be caused by saltwater. Most loading operations are also controlled by one of our Port Captains who ensures that all cargo is safely and accurately driven on board and secured to the vessel.
