The demand for freight capacity in Baltic Sea has been growing steadily over last few years. We are now supporting this growth by investing in a new route from Poland to Sweden; Gdynia-Nynäshamn, which will start operation from October 16 with initially six trips a week.
This is an important step where we are meeting an increasingly strong demand from our customers and also building for the future. We will continue to develop our business in line with our customers’ and the market demands and the new route will be an important complement to our existing Baltic Sea routes.
The demand for freight capacity both from Poland and from Sweden is steadily growing. The routes over the Baltic Sea are an important part of the infrastructure connecting Central Europe with Scandinavia and have a great potential for development. With this new route we will now have one very strong transportation hub in Gdynia, one in Nynäshamn and one in Karlskrona.
The first sailing on this new route will take place on 16 October and will be operated by the RoRo vessel ‘Elisabeth Russ’ and is intended for freight, including trucks with drivers, trailers and containers. The ship will operate 3 times a week from Gdynia and 3 times a week from Nynäshamn.
