Stena Line-Wasaline cooperation

The ferry shipping lines have entered into an agreement to offer a combined sea-rail service from Italy via Germany and Sweden to Finland.

 

The cooperation encompasses the Verona-Kiel rail kombi service of Kombiverkehr, Stena Line’s Kiel-Gothenburg ro-pax route, Green Cargo’s Gothenburg-Umeå rail link, and finally Wasaline’s ferry services between the Swedish Port of Umeå and the Finnish harbour in Vaasa. The cooperation product will be sold by Stena Line (which together with Green Cargo and Logent offers the ‘Three Links’ combined sea-rail network linking Sweden and Norway with continental Europe and now also with Finland).

 

“One part of Stena Line’s strategy is to increase the utilization rate of available tonnage across our liner traffic through increased unaccompanied freight volumes. In such a way we are not only creating profitability for ourselves, but we are also meeting future requirements concerning better sustainability and lower impact on the environment – something positive in its very principle. We are now more effectively making use of both the ferries and the rail system,” Christer Kjellberg, Group Freight Rail & System Manager at Stena Line Scandinavia, commented.

 

Peter Ståhlberg, CEO of Wasaline, added: “It has been our ambition from the very beginning to introduce new transport links as well as to find business partners. It is a very important issue for Wasaline to improve the region’s logistics offer.”
