P&O Ferries to offer service to Sweden – updated

[ June 15, 2015   //   ]

P&O Ferries is offering a service to Gothenburg following a link-up with Swedish Orient Line (SOL). Forwarders can now ship their freight from Tilbury and Teesport to Zeebrugge, connecting with the SOL Zeebrugge-Gothenburg service, which operates four days a week. .SOL operates into the Stora terminal in Zeebrugge and P&O arranges shunt to and from its terminal with its own tugmasters, giving a total voyage time of around 47-66 hours. Bookings can be made through SOL Continent Line’s booking systems.
P&O Ferries commercial director Janette Bell said: “With this cooperation we can add a strong Scandinavian dimension to our transport services. Access to Scandinavia from Southern England and the North of the United Kingdom is now much improved and easily bookable.”
SOL managing director Ragnar Johansson, added: “By this, we can offer a convenient, frequent and fast access to and from the UK.”
In January 2013, P&O Ferries announced a similar link-up with Transfennica to operate a connecting service from UK ports to Bilbao via Zeebrugge.
