Freight company increases sailings

A Guernsey shipping company has increased its sailings to meet the demand created by the collapse of Huelin-Renouf.

Huelin-Renouf, which carried about 25% of the freight to both Guernsey and Jersey, folded last month after running into financial difficulties.

Channel Seaways will now operate three sailings per week between the two islands and its UK base in Poole.

The firm's parent company also provides services to and from Alderney.

Alderney Shipping offers a weekly Poole to Alderney and Guernsey to Alderney service.

Bruno Kay-Mouat, managing director, said: "I hope by offering these additional sailings Channel Seaways can allay fears that the islands would be left short of freight capacity after the loss of a major provider."

The company began trading between the islands in 1969 and set up its base in Pole in 2006.
