- in its Winter Dress - Five degrees, Snow and a little more light in the evening. A good winter is almost as beautiful as a good summer if you are a Viking but the best thing - no mosquitoes!
The year has had a very positive start with increased volumes, approximately around three percent up on last year. Fair is fair –with new capacity offered by the Roro route Europoort- Killingholme and the additional capacity offered with the Stena Hibernia on the Belfast- Liverpool route plus the third Ropax vessel on Karlskrona-Gdynia.
The above new levels of capacity are of course assisting in raising the volumes compared to 2014, however business is growing and our products are attractive to you – ‘Our Customer’. This is the best proof of our achievements and developments we can have.
After the SECA BAF race 2014 now behind us, we are working hard on reliability, punctuality and efficiency to reach an even better product and utilization for 2015. Even if the low fuel prices have decreased the kilometre price on the roads, I'm convinced that rail connectivity to our routes is essential and will grow further. Within our Business Development Organisation we will focus on the next step forward for a leading Pan European Short Sea Shipping Company. The discussions with our customers are the most important element of this work.
Stena Line Freight will be participating at a large number of trade fairs and customer events this year. Planning and preparation is taking place just now and with the support from our Group Freight Marketing Manager Inge Rosenbæk Carlsen you will see this launched during the year in many locations.
We believe in further growth in 2015 - please join us. Our ambition is to make you, as the customer, and ourselves more competitive.
