Samskip announces launch of shortsea service between Rotterdam, Oslofjord and the UK

On 19 March 2024 Samskip announced the launch of a new dedicated shortsea service between Rotterdam, Oslofjord and the UK.

This comes after the successful departures of the first three vessels from Samskip’s Matrans Terminal, Rotterdam, en route to Norway, with all operations proceeding as planned.

The new service includes three port calls in Oslo, two port calls in Moss and one call per week in Kristiansand, Larvik, Fredrikstad and Brevik, offering customers more options and flexibility from the daily arrivals and departures in the Greater Oslo area.

Samskip Head of Norway Trade, Paul Wielaard, said:

“We are focusing on three main objectives this year. The further expansion of our already extensive network, to boost our services and support for our customers, and becoming an even more sustainable organization.

“We pride ourselves on the way we listen to our customers’ needs and market demands and remain agile in order to respond effectively. We understand the importance of being reliable, but to be a real partner, we also need to provide innovation in our logistics solutions.”
