First Call as Dallas Express

Another first time caller (Kind of) to Halifax, Dallas Express arrived and tied up at Fairview Cove.

This Vessel is the former Antwerpen Express who was a regular in Halifax. She Emerged as Dallas Express early this year after emerging from Dry Dock in Hong Kong.

Best guess is that a new vessel will be named Antwerpen Express in the Near future.
