Eimskip starts calling Helsingborg in Sweden
Eimskip has decided to start calling Helsingborg in Sweden as of 4 May this year. The company will at the same time stop calling Halmstad which has been its port of call in recent years.

There has been substantial growth in transport between Iceland and Sweden, to and from the Faroe Islands and in Trans-Atlantic services.
