The new schedule, going from Klaipeda - Lithuania, via Gdynia - Poland and Norway, ends in Immingham, giving a transit time of only 6 days at sea (only 5 days from Poland). The long stretch at sea also leaves you a much greener freight alternative, especially with larger volumes.
Last winter Viasea opened the first sailing to the UK, as well as a department in Immingham. Now – having a high demand for freight from the Baltics to the UK, the routes will change accordingly. We have rearranged for a somewhat bigger ship to handle this route, giving possibilities for more cargo. 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!
Viasea has been running a Klaipeda-Gdynia-Norway route for a while, but with newly opened offices in both ports. The route will be visiting 3 ports in Norway on its westbound sailing; with Oslo, and newly added Moss 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 route, 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!
