This year - thanks to fast growing popularity of the Gdynia-Karlskrona route - we decided to add four additional sailings on Tuesdays and Saturdays, increasing the route’s frequency to 36 trips per week. These additional sailings allow us to meet our freight customers’ needs by supporting them to deliver their goods on time and while also strengthening the Gdynia corridor and its HUB function.
Three vessels – the Stena Spirit, the Stena Vision and the Stena Baltica are operating on this route, offering perfect rest conditions for truck drivers, allowing them to use the ferry crossing as their full, obligatory daily break. Both terminals in Gdynia and Karlskrona are also well equipped to develop intermodal solutions.
Over the last 20 years the Gdynia-Karlskrona route has become an important transport corridor to and from Scandinavia. Thanks to the fast development of the road and rail hinterland infrastructure, this ferry connection allows smooth transportation to and from Poland, as well as in further transit to and from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Ukraine, The Balkans and Turkey.
We believe that 2017 will be another good year and we are already planning further development of the corridor!
