ARC Loads Army Aviation Unit in The Netherlands for Operation Atlantic Resolve
Avram Fox, Terminal Director at the North Sea Detachment of the Military Surface Deployment & Distribution Command (SDDC) commented, “ARC has been a strong commercial partner of the U.S. Military in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve. The M/V Endurance is an exceptionally capable vessel well suited to the transportation of large numbers of heavy vehicles, helicopters, and hazardous cargo in support of regularly scheduled brigade rotations.”
The M/V Endurance is one of the most capable commercial vessels in the global fleet and one of five ARC ships capable of carrying aviation units and V-22 Ospreys in military sealift configuration. With a 320 metric ton stern ramp, a main deck height of 20.5 feet (6.25 meters), and 262,252 square feet of militarily useful capacity, the M/V Endurance is the perfect ship to handle brigade-sized deployments.
