Stena Line plans to enter the Finnish market with a daily route connecting Hanko with Nynäshamn in Sweden as the carrier aims to strengthen its services in the Baltic Sea.
The route will kick off in February with the ship Urd. This will be expanded to two vessels, including Stena Gothica, from May 2022. The ro-pax ferries have a capacity of 1,600 lane meters.
“With our new daily route between Hanko and Nynäshamn, we heavily expand and strengthen our position in the Baltic Sea. Growing with our customers, we are investing in the new service to accommodate the increasing demand of our freight customers for seamless transports in the Baltic Sea and beyond,” said Niclas Mårtensson, ceo of Stena Line.
Anders Ahlvik, managing director at the port of Hanko, added: “Hanko is a key hub for trade and industrial products, the automotive industry and export of forest industry products. The new route extends our connections to key target markets in Sweden.”
