Wellard Rural Exports managing director Steve Meerwald said the ships would add to the fleet of ships run by the Balzarini¹s family company Siba Ships, which also owns the MV Becrux ‹ the world¹s most modern livestock vessel.

³The two new ships will have a capacity of 25,000 sheep or 6500 cattle and encompass the latest technology further demonstrating Wellard¹s commitment to animal welfare,² he said.
