From February 1, 2007 all Kursiu Linija services will be operated under the Containerships name. Containerships will also have its own agents in Lithuania and Latvia, under the names of Containerships Lithuania and Containerships Latvia. These replace UAB Arijus and Kursiu Linija Latvia. The Finland, Russia, Poland, Sweden service has also been enhanced from January 30, when the Carina made its first call in Klaipeda. She will add in Klaipeda into her rotation, which will then be: Helsinki - St. Petersburg - Klaipeda - Gdansk - Sodertalje. This will enable UK and European shippers to use Containerships to reach the east coast of Sweden, as its growing shortsea network will now allow it to trans-ship Sweden-bound cargo from UK and Rotterdam in Klaipeda.
