Global logistics company Samskip has launched a new dedicated shortsea service connecting Rotterdam, Oslofjord and the UK. The company said the new service follows the successful departure of the first three vessels from its Matrans Terminal in Rotterdam. 

All vessels departing the Matrans Terminal in Rotterdam headed to Norway with all operations proceeding without issue. This highlighted the quality of teamwork between Samskip and its partners as well as its customer base.

The new service includes three port calls in Oslo, two port calls in Moss and one call per week in Kristiansand, Larvik, Fredrikstad and Brevik. Samskip aims to offer its customers more options and flexibility from the daily arrivals and departures in the Greater Oslo area.

Commenting on the new shortsea service, Samskip Head of Norway Trade – Paul Wielaard, said, “We are focusing on three main objectives this year. The further expansion of our already extensive network, to boost our services and support for our customers, and become an even more sustainable organization. We pride ourselves on the way we listen to our customers’ needs and market demands and remain agile in order to respond effectively. We understand the importance of being reliable, but to be a real partner, we also need to provide innovation in our logistics solutions. We are excited about the possibilities this new service brings to our customers and to this region.”
