John Good welcomes ro-ro partnership

December 1 - John Good Shipping has formed a new partnership with Swedish Orient Line (SOL) following its appointment as UK liner agent for SOL's new ro-ro service between Finland and Tilbury.

SOL is significantly increasing its range of ro-ro services from the already established Finland-Germany route, to include both the Benelux countries and the UK.

The new service will be served by two modern 1A super ice class vessels, with a capacity of 2,774 lane metres each, calling at Kemi, Oulu, Lübeck, Zeebrugge, Antwerp and Tilbury on a weekly basis. John Good Shipping says that the service will open up opportunities for customers shipping trailers, project cargo and new and used vehicles in both directions.

The vessels are long-term chartered by pulp and paper manufacturer, Stora Enso. SOL explained that SOL North Europe Service will operate the services on behalf of Stora Enso, while SOL Continent Line is the agent in charge of marketing capacities to third party cargo.

SOL already operates an established service between Zeebrugge and Gothenburg and can therefore also offer a weekly connection between Tilbury and Gothenburg, departing Tilbury on a Friday with arrival of the vessel in Gothenburg on Monday.
