China’s Jingling Shipyard has begun conducting sea trials of the final one of six freight-only Ro-Ro ferries in a series ordered by Danish shipping company DFDS.

Like its sisters, the vessel has capacity for 6,700 lane metres of freight or the equivalent of 450 trailers.

The vessel is scheduled for delivery early next year.
