P&O Ferries and RoRO vessel operator SOL Continent Line have teamed up to combine services between the UK, Benelux and Scandinavia.
Under the partnership, forwarders will be able to ship their freight from Tilbury and Teesport via Zeebrugge to Gothenburg through four weekly departures from Tilbury and four from Teesport respectively.
The new services combine the daily routes Tilbury – Zeebrugge and Teesport – Zeebrugge operated by P&O Ferries with SOL Continent Line’s service between Zeebrugge and Gothenburg, Scandinavia’s largest port.
“With this cooperation we can add a strong Scandinavian dimension to our transport services”, explains Commercial Director Janette Bell at P&O Ferries. “Access to Scandinavia from Southern England and the North of the United Kingdom is now much improved and easily bookable.”
“We are happy to announce this professional partnership with P&O Ferries that provides a logical extension to our Gothenburg-Zeebrugge service. By this, we can offer a convenient, frequent and fast access to and from the UK,” says Ragnar Johansson, MD at Swedish Orient Line AB.
