The schedule from the UK, leaves from Immingham each Friday. Then we arrive in Oslo and Moss on Mondays, and further to Klaipeda and Gdynia the next day. This gives you a transit time to Norway on 3 days, Lithuania in 6 days and Poland in 7 days. On our way back from Oslo to Immingham, we do the sailing in 2 days!
Last winter Viasea opened the first sailing to the UK, as well as a department in Immingham. This again – is a huge contribution to reducing the CO2 emissions on freight, comparing to sending cargo by road. Especially when cargo exceeds one container over a long geographical route!
Viasea has been running a Klaipeda-Gdynia-Norway route for a while, but with newly opened offices in both ports. The route is visiting 2 ports in Norway on its westbound sailing; Oslo and Moss, with a possibility to transport your cargo further on to Larvik and Kristiansand – giving access to the whole of the southern part of Norway in one route.
The reduction on emission impact on the climate on this whole route from west to east, is massive, if we compare sea to road. If you send 1 container all the way by trailer from Klaipeda to Immingham (through Poland, Germany, Benelux and Calais – Dover) this route will have 78% less CO2 emission* going by sea instead! Imagine many containers!
