Greencarrier adds Finland link

[ November 9, 2011   //   ]

Swedish-based forwarder Greencarrier, together with its UK subsidiary Greencarrier PTS, Greencarrier is launching a direct service to Finland. The new link comes less than six months after Greencarrier acquired the Ipswich-based company PTS UK, which already had regular full and part-load services between the UK and Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

A direct consolidated service links Hull and Helsinki with collection/delivery of individual shipments throughout the UK and Finland as required. Consolidation takes place at PTS facilities in Immingham and Ipswich.

Greencarrier PTS Managing director Robert Gaunt said that from the UK, the service has a closing date of Friday with shipment on Saturday from Hull. The cargo arrives in Helsinki on Tuesdays. He added: “The Greencarrier terminal in Helsinki is in the port area itself resulting in fast cargo processing. This means that on Wednesday morning, we are ready for distribution all over Finland.”

Ex-Finland, collection is on Thursday for loading Friday and sailing Saturday.

Gaunt added: “For many shipments, including hazardous goods, this is a very cost effective and reliable solution where the whole operation is controlled within one company utilising its many years of experience and expertise within the Nordic markets.”
