Early next year, Ports of Stockholm’s RoRo customer Finnlines will increase cargo capacity on the Kapellskär – Långnäs – Naantali route. This means that greater volumes can be transported by sea to and from Sweden’s largest consumer area.
Shipping company Finnlines will introduce a larger vessel on the Kapellskär – Långnäs – Naantali route on 27th January 2022, increasing cargo footage capacity by an additional 1,200 metres. The larger RoPax ferry MS Europalink will replace the current MS Finnfellow on the route. MS Europalink is 219 metres in length, can carry 500 passengers and has a total cargo footage capacity of 4,200 metres. The MS Europalink will operate on the route together with the vessel MS Finnswan, making 14 calls a week at Port of Kapellskär.
“It is very positive that our RoRo customer is continuing to expand and develop at Port of Kapellskär. We have a long-standing and good collaboration with Finnlines, which means we are able to develop side-by-side,” says Peter Lundman, Technical Operations Manager at Port of Kapellskär.
Port of Kapellskär is one of Sweden’s largest and most important freight transport ports and has grown steadily for a long time. A total footage of 3.5 million metres of goods are transported via the port each year.
“Shipping is an energy efficient mode of transport. The possibility to transport greater volumes of goods by sea to and from the Stockholm region, where half of Sweden's consumption takes place, is a great benefit," explains Nicklas Ebersson, Marketing Manager Cargo at Ports of Stockholm.
Ports of Stockholm is Sweden’s third-largest freight transport port. The Port of Kapellskär currently handles 50 percent of Ports of Stockholm’s ferry freight to and from Finland and Estonia.
