Tilbury Welcomes Back Finnlines

London’s Port of Tilbury has secured a new Ro-Ro service with Finnlines, one of the leading shipping operators of ro-ro and passenger services in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, the port said.


The new service, which began operating in August, will be a weekly service calling each Thursday feeding the Baltic states and Scandinavia with cargo, including paper and general cargo.

The service sees a return to Tilbury for Finnlines who had previously operated a ro-ro service at the Port until the end of 2006.

 Paul Dale, Senior Asset Manager at the Port of Tilbury said: “We are delighted to welcome Finnlines back to Tilbury. As the largest paper handling port in the UK, Finnlines will benefit from Tilbury’s expertise and connectivity in the South east. ”

Brian Rolfe, Managing Director of Finnlines UK said: “The new weekly connection to/from Tilbury to Helsinki and further to St Petersburg strenghens our position in the South of England and we have received positive feedback from our customers for adding a Southern port to our schedule.”
