Samskip further enhances the Norway Oslofjord service
The Norway Oslofjord service will be optimized further as of week 7. Samskip has announced an improved sailing schedule covering seven ports in the Oslofjord. With the new schedule, Samskip will offer a faster door-door transit time from Rotterdam to Moss, Kristiansand and Larvik which will be served on a weekly basis as well as the ports of Fredrikstad and Brevik. In addition, Samskip expands its operation in the Oslofjord by adding the port of Drammen to the network. This creates the possibility to deliver cargo loaded on Thursday or Friday the next Monday in the Oslo area and is therefore an attractive alternative to road transport. The two weekly departures from Rotterdam (on Tuesday and Saturday) to Oslo will remain unchanged and offers the possibility to ship cargo within five calendar days on a door-door basis. The Tuesday departure enables cargo to be loaded at the beginning of the week and to be delivered on Friday in the Oslo area. The Saturday departure can be used for cargo loading at the end of the week to be delivered the next Tuesday in the Oslo area.
New Norwegian shortsea line connecting Oslo and Rotterdam
Oct. 25 2016 - The newly established Norwegian shipping line, Viasea Shipping AS, starts a container line between Rotterdam and the Oslofjord in early November. A large Norwegian forwarder is behind the initiative. Uniquely, Viasea will focuse on shortsea services, ie intra-European container shipping without feeder containers. The main focus is regularity and predictability - and to be a real alternative to trucks between many parts of Europe and Norway. Viasea will be a small player with great flexibility and quick decision-making, according to a press release from the company. http://www.shiptonorway.no/News/3814/New-Norwegian-shortsea-lineUpload News
