Calmac problems

Recommended Posts

And Calmac have the cheek to dispute the awarding of the northern isles contract to Serco.... Perhaps they were planning to nick Hjaltland, Hrossey and Hamnavoe and put them on west coats routes?

Serco is an interesting one was at Forth valley hospital which is run by them and it seemed ok and the Caledonian sleeper seems to be having a “few” teething issues but generally ok, regardless I hope Calmac don’t get their hands on ScotRail in 2022.

The parallels with Scandlines' Berlin and Copenhagen back in 2012 are quite striking.  Didn't that bring down the shipyard when Scandlines rejected the vessels on a deadweight issue ? Seem to remember that Scandlines ended up getting the ferries anyway, presumably cut-price from the shipyard's creditors ?
