Stena Line launches new route between Luxembourg and Sweden
Starting from 11th January 2021, ferry company Stena Line and the ports in Rostock and Trelleborg will offer a new intermodal rail and ferry connection from Bettembourg in Luxembourg via their ferry route from Rostock to Trelleborg in Sweden.
The combination of sea and rail is a cost-effective and sustainable transport option offering a high degree of capability and flexibility, thus reducing CO2 emissions by 1,75 tons per unit compared to road transport.
Stena Line is one of the world's largest ferry companies, and Stena Line plays an important role in the European logistics network, with 36 vessels running 18 ferry routes.
Stena Line has increasingly extended its services and offers to reach beyond shipping from dock to dock and today offers solutions that combine and connect road, sea and rail transport in a seamless shipping operation.
“We have seen a strong demand among our customers for a regular intermodal service to and from the southern part of Western Europe including France and Spain to and from Scandinavia. We see a great potential in both directions with industry products such as wood, paper and steel from the north and fresh food, fruit and vegetables and consumer products from the south”, states Fredrik Johansson, Shipping Logistics Sales & Business Development Manager at Stena Line Group.
The new intermodal solutions add to the current offer of intermodal solutions from the Port of Kiel to the Port of Bettembourg and the Port of Verona in Italy, as well as from the Port of Verona to the Port of Rostock.
