A new liner service between East Coast Sweden, Northern Holland and The Humber commences in The New Year. Baltic Euro Lines is a joint venture established between two prominent Norwegian shipping companies, Seafront Maritime AS and Kopervik based, Northwest Ship Management AS.
The service will commence operation with one multi-purpose side-port vessel, MV Skog, with a cargo capacity of approximately 4,100 tonnes. The route will incorporate the ports of Oxelösund situated on Sweden's east coast, Eemshaven, Northern Holland and The Humber, UK.
Baltic Euro Lines Managing Director, Jan Rune Loevlie, commented:
"We established the fortnightly service to fill a gap we see in the market today and in the future, for transporting predominantly industrial type cargoes between Sweden, Holland and The Humber, UK. Our side-port vessel gives us tremendous flexibility to accommodate loose on board goods, out of gauge cargoes and containers of all types".
The liner operation and commercial activity will be managed from Kristiansand with support being provided by the Northwest Ship Management and Baltic Euro Lines UK hosted by Grimsby based Seafront Logistics Limited, part of Seafront Group AS. The Line will have local representation at the ports of Oxelösund and Eemshaven
