SCA Transforest opens weekly route between Rotterdam and Stockholm

The freight shipping company SCA Transforest is expanding its operations in Stockholm with one vessel, in collaboration with the Russian shipping company Delta Shipping Lines.

Starting January 2012 SCA Transforest will be calling at Stockholm once a week and the route expands to St. Petersburg.

The new route operates Umeå – Sundsvall – Rotterdam – Stockholm – St. Petersburg.

"We welcome the news that SCA Transforest launches a weekly service between Stockholm and Rotterdam, and that the route is also extended to St. Petersburg. This means that the market offers greater frequency between Stockholm and Rotterdam, and a good transport solution for freight between Stockholm and St. Petersburg, which has been requested", says Henrik Widerståhl, Vice President and Marketing Director at Ports of Stockholm." For Ports of Stockholm the new deal proves that the container terminal Frihamnen remains competitive for freight flows in the Stockholm / Mälardalen region."
