Samskip has expanded its shortsea service network in Norway with Kristiansund and Molde by adding Gjemnes as its 10th port of call.
The multimodal solution provider describes the move as its latest strategic step to intensify Samskip’s presence in the Nordic region and enhance efficiency. It follows on from the introduction of the larger capacity 657 TEU container vessel MV ALK into Norwegian West Coast shortsea services in mid-2015.
“Narrow roads and limited infrastructure make trucking to and from the major Norwegian city of Ålesund, expensive, unsafe and environmentally unfriendly,” says Are Grathen, General Manager Norway. “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”. Moreover, from Gjemnes it is the shortest available lead time (50 hours).
