Samskip Bolsters Norwegian Service

Rotterdam-based transportation company Samskip has expanded its shortsea service network in Norway with Kristiansund and Molde by adding Gjemnes as its 10th port of call.

The move follows on from the company’s introduction of the larger capacity 657 TEU container vessel MV Alk into the Norwegian West Coast shortsea services in mid-2015, Samskip said.

“With a fixed weekly Tuesday departure ex Rotterdam to the port of Gjemnes and a Saturday arrival and departure from Gjemnes, Samskip offers a reliable alternative for the region,” says Are Grathen, General Manager Norway.

The shortsea service connects the Gjemnes area directly into the Samskip European multimodal network as well as to major deepsea terminals for shipments worldwide.

The service is open to all types of intermodal loading units such as 45ft containers, reefers, tank containers and bulk containers.
