Samskip launched new short-sea service between Finland, Latvia, UK and Netherlands

In November 2023 Samskip will mark the maiden voyage of the Samskip owned and operated weekly service connecting Rotterdam, Helsinki, Riga and Hull.

This new service is in response to demand for a reliable short-sea service in the Baltic Sea region.

Samskip’s new Baltic Sea service will directly link Latvia and Finland with the United Kingdom and the Netherlands with fast transit times.

The service achieves a five-day transit time from Riga to Hull, and a seven-day transit time from Helsinki to Hull. Supporting the new route, Samskip will deploy two vessels, BF Cartagena and Dornbusch.

Customers such as retailers in Finland will benefit from the reliable and short transit times of the route from Rotterdam to Helsinki with arrivals in Helsinki every Tuesday morning.

Samskip Regional Director – UK, Richard Beales, said: “We are very pleased to welcome this new direct call from Helsinki/Riga via our ideally situated Humberside gateway in Hull.

“This new service offers our customers a direct and reliable corridor to-and-from Finland and the Baltics to the UK. We are able to link into the UK Region’s in-house value-added services, such as customs clearance support and land transport to deliver a seamless door-to-door service.”
