SOL opens new ro-ro route

December 22 - Swedish Orient Line (SOL) is beginning a new ro-ro service between Ventpils (Latvia), Zeebrugge (Belgium) and Tilbury (UK) from the end of January 2017.

John Good Shipping - UK general liner agent for SOL - will handle all aspects of the new service in the UK, including sales and marketing.

"The service will also add an additional cross-channel sailing between Tilbury and Zeebrugge in addition to our existing weekly service via our north Finland schedule," said Ragnar Johannson, managing director of SOL.

Cargo types accommodated on the new route include trailers, shipper's own containers and other rolling cargo, as well as breakbulk cargo loaded on roll trailers.

Alan Platt, chairman of John Good Shipping, commented: "The opening of the new service to Latvia is the next exciting phase in SOL's development plans to expand its liner services in the Baltic region."


Wagenborg's vessel Schieborg will operate on the new service.
