As of September 30, Samskip Multimodal introduces its own weekly shortsea service to the Norwegian West Coast, connecting its pan-European network to Tananger, Bergen and Ålesund via Rotterdam, the Netherlands, deploying the 518 TEU MV Pioneer Bay.

Linkage Samskip network
With a guaranteed weekly departure on Tuesdays, the shortsea service is available between Rotterdam, the Netherlands and Tananger, Bergen and Ålesund, Norway, with possible inducement calls to Måløy and other Norwegian ports.

Samskip Multimodal customers will benefit from linkage to the West Coast of Norway and Ålesund-based cold stores via the rest of the Samskip network, enabling delivery throughout Europe.

Door-Door and Quay-Quay services
Besides normal Door-Door services, Samskip Multimodal will also provide Quay-Quay services, securing its growth in the Door-Door segment and Tank/Bulk markets.

Sailing schedule
With a fixed weekly sailing schedule, Samskip Multimodal is able to deliver cargoes anywhere along the Norwegian West Coast from Rotterdam in the same week.  Schedule integrity will be secured through limiting the number of port calls.
