In 1994 Wagenborg introduces container-feeder vessels. The “Reestborg” and “Reggeborg”, with a capacity of 558 TEU, are built by Verolme in Heusden. These container ships stand out in that they do not have any hatches. Vertical rails form container guides from the holds to the gangways above. This leads to faster loading and unloading and it limits the chance of losing containers or any damage. The ships have a length of 140 metres and connections for 80 refrigerated containers. They have two independent diesel engines of 3250 kW, each delivering a service speed of 18 miles an hour.
