FRS kauft MV “Miranda” für Motril und Tanger Med

Das Motorschiff Miramar Express auf See.
  • MV “Miranda” will be renamed to MS “Miramar Express”
  • The vessel will start operations on the Motril-Tangier Med line in mid-January
  • FRS strengthens its commitment to the growing cargo business on the Motril-Tangier Med Line


MS "Miramar Express" has cabins for up to 12 drivers and a capacity of 1,624 lane meters. The 154 m long vessel can reach a maximum speed of 21 knots.

With this new Ro-Ro vessel, specially designed for the transportation of freight, FRS strengthens its commitment to the growing cargo business on the Motril-Tangier MED Line.

“Our cargo customers recognised the advantage of much lower logistic costs due to the close geographical proximity to the motorways, the efficient flow of traffic during embarkation and disembarkation, savings of kilometers, saving of toll road fees and very efficient inspections in Motril” explains Managing Director Ronny Moriana.
