Finnlines is opening a shipping route between Rosslare, Ireland and Zeebrugge, Belgium.
The service will begin on July 23 with the ro-ro vessel Finnpulp. There will be two departures per week in each direction.
According to Finnlines, the Finnish, German and Spanish industries will also have an easier access to Ireland via transhipment in Zeebrugge.
“We are delighted to support the growing post-Brexit Irish trade to the Continent and provide transport operators with an important alternative route, which will greatly benefit all stakeholders and the Irish economy. Finnlines provides cost-efficient and high frequency liner services to its customers with the lowest CO2 emissions per transported cargo unit,” said Antonio Raimo, line manager at Finnlines.
