The strong growth within Stena Lines freight business on Baltic Sea South continues.

To meet the need for increased capacity, a fourth ship, Gute, came into operation between Gdynia and Karlskrona from Monday 28 August.

In 2016 the number of freight units on the route increased significantly and in the first eight months in 2017 the growth continues.

“Over these last few years we have experienced a very positive volume development and we believe this will continue and we are very happy to introduce a fourth ship since we are in need of extra capacity to be able to continue to grow,” said Marek Kiersnowski, Trade Director.

Gute is time-chartered from Gotlandsbolaget. The vessel will be a complement to Stena Vision, Stena Spirit and Stena Baltica with the major focus on Stena Line’s freight operation.

The introduction of Gute will add an additional eight trips a week and now Stena Line can offer 44 weekly trips on the route.
