American Roll-on Roll-off Carrier (ARC) was proud to be selected for the transportation of ammunition for the German Army (Bundeswehr) to the United States of America.

On May 9, containers of explosive ammunition arrived in port of Bremerhaven, Germany. There, they were loaded on to M/V Resolve bound for Baltimore, Maryland. The containers were discharged in the United States on May 24. The cargo was destined for Bundeswehr military training in the United States.

The M/V Resolve, which carried the containers from Germany to the United States, operates in ARC’s five-ship Atlantic liner service. The service includes base port calls in Baltimore, MD, Charleston, SC, Brunswick, GA, and Galveston, TX in the United States and Antwerp, Belgium, Bremerhaven, Germany, and Southampton, UK. With a ten-day frequency, over 2.5 million square feet of commercial capacity, and nearly one million square feet of militarily useful high and heavy space, ARC’s U.S.-flag Atlantic service is ideally suited for commercial, military and project cargoes.

This German military move showcased the versatility of ARC’s ro-ro fleet. From rolling stock to break bulk to explosives, ARC handles some of the most difficult cargo for the most demanding customers. For information on how ARC can handle your cargo, please visit us at: or send a message:
