The Hoegh Berlin (IMO: 9295842, Port of Registry: Oslo, Norway) is a 200 meters long, 32 meters wide car/truck carrier with a fully-loaded capacity of 6,100 cars, secured on 12 decks with a total deck area equal to that of nine football fields. Cars are loaded through the side- and stern-mounted ramps that allows for a variety of wheeled cargo to be driven aboard. The vessel was built in 2005 by Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering in South Korea under contract to Höegh Autoliners as the fifth vessel in the series of nine newbuildings.

The Hoegh Berlin is expected to arrive this evening at the Rotterdam Car Terminal from Barcelona.
