On 9 July, 2019 Höegh Trapper returned to the port of Mackay on its Europe to USA, Mexico and Oceania service. To commemorate the occasion representatives from North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation, traditional owners and council members from Mackay as well as customers and service providers were invited to tour the vessel.
Being the largest Pure Car and Truck Carrier in the world, the guests were welcomed to showcase the vessel’s flexibility and wide range of cargoes it can cater to.
Captain Nicky Colaco, Höegh Autoliners Sales Manager in Australia says,
Since August 2018, Höegh Autoliners pioneered to add Mackay to its service in Australia as customers required a direct connectivity to North Queensland for their breakbulk commodities. With its strategic location, the port provides a convenient gateway for heavy equipment to the Bowen Basin in Central Queensland to supply both the mining and agricultural industry.
