Due to the fast growth of freight volumes on the route Gdynia-Karlskrona it has been decided to add another roundtrip of Stena Baltica. From 10 September Stena Baltica started departing with the extra roundtrip from Gdynia at 11:00 and from Karlskrona at 21:59 each Saturday.
In May this year two extra trips of Stena Baltica were already added on Tuesdays and the response from the freight market has been extremely positive. The increased number of sailings will increase Stena Line’s frequency even further from 34 to 36 trips per week, strengthening the position on the corridor between Poland and Sweden.
The route on Gdynia-Karlskrona has, over the last 20 years, 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, Balkans and Turkey.
We hope that the new round trip will be well received by our freight customers who do not only need additional capacity but also higher frequency in order to deliver their goods on time.
