Samskip launches dedicated shortsea service between Rotterdam, Oslofjord and UK


Samskip is pleased to announce the successful launch of its newest dedicated shortsea service between Rotterdam, Oslofjord and the UK. This follows the successful departures of the first three vessels from Samskip’s Matrans Terminal, Rotterdam, en route to Norway, with all operations proceeding flawlessly.

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, offering our customers more options and flexibility from the daily arrivals and departures in the Greater Oslo area.

Samskip Head of Norway Trade, Paul Wielaard says: “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 becoming 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.”
