New intra-Europe container service to start in November

Sun Lines of TSG will launch a new container service between the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom in November.

The rotation of the service will be Rotterdam (Netherlands) - Stockholm (Sweden) - Hull (United Kingdom) - Rotterdam.

The Dutch shipping line will operate the service for both short sea as well as transshipment containers.

Hutchison Ports Stockholm said the new service will give importers and exporters in Stockholm and the East coast of Sweden a multitude of efficient connections with both Asian as well as other international markets.

“The new service brings the Asian markets close to our region and provides our customers with more options and more flexibility. Importers and exporters in Stockholm can save at least four days by using this fast service directly connecting Stockholm with Rotterdam,” commented Lawrence Yam, CEO of Hutchison Ports Stockholm.

Eric Hjalmarsson, CEO of TSG, stated, "We have seen the need for this additional service for some time and now that time has come. Starting from Sweden's newest port, Stockholm Norvik, feels like a natural step and completely in line with our goal to strengthen our position in east coast shipping."
