Stena Linking Stockholm to Liepaja
- Business & Finance
Sweden’s ferry operator Stena Line is increasing its share in Scandinavian market freight volumes by expanding its services from the Port of Nynäshamn with a new destination, Liepaja in Latvia.
“It is really pleasing that Stena Line wants to grow with us. This will be the twelfth destination possible to reach directly from Ports of Stockholm,” said Dick Lagerberg, Ports of Stockholm’s Transport and Logistics Manager.
From Ports of Stockholm it is now possible to travel to Naantali, Turku, Helsinki, Mariehamn, Visby, Saint Petersburg, Tallinn, Riga, Paldiski, Ventspils, Liepaja and Gdansk.
“This is a strategically important route for us, and a route that we believe will continue to develop positively. Our goal is to eventually operate two virtually identical sister ships on the route, with fully developed facilities for both goods freight and passengers. This has been our successful strategy on other routes,” said Stena Line Baltic Sea Route Manager, Tony Michaelsen.
