In cooperation with Stena Line, a new transport connection on a multimodal route (rail + sea) has been launched, which is able to ensure competitive delivery times for the flow of goods from Russia to the European Union compared to land transport and makes a significant contribution to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly transport model.
From August 13, the ferry operator Stena Line has started transportation on the route Liepaja (Latvia) – Karlskrona (Sweden) – Traveminde (Germany). Initially, the call at the port of Karlskrona will be only on Thursday evening – in one direction from Liepaja to Traveminde, however, it is expected that the new service will provide cargo carriers with wider trade and transport opportunities between the Baltic States and southern Scandinavia.
