Fjord Line launches ferry service to Scandinavia

Apr 27, 2016

Ferry company Fjord Line and maritime shipping company CLdN ro-ro SA have entered into a commercial partnership which gives Fjord Line access to CLdN's European network for the transport of freight and cargo.  

From February the company will operate a weekly service between Zeebrugge in Belgium and Gothenburg in Sweden. This opens new possibilities for Fjord Line's transport of freight and cargo on its Bergen-Stavanger-Hirtshals and Langesund-Hirtshals routes.  

Since the cessation of DFDS’s service from Harwich to Esbjerg in 2014 there are no direct ferry services from the UK to Scandinavia, so the new service from Zeebrugge could provide a viable alternative to the long road trip from the Hooke of Holland or the Channel ports. For movers based in mainland Europe the new route may also offer savings both in road miles and tolls.   
 
Rune Hetland, Cargo Manager at Fjord Line said, "Our partnership with CLdN starts an exciting chapter for expanded freight and cargo transport by sea between Norway and central European ports. We look forward to developing these new shipping solutions, and offering our current and future customers new and exciting possibilities."  
 

Fjord Line is a modern shipping company established in 1993 that offers passenger and freight transport between Norway and the rest of Europe.
