Ferry company Fjord Line and maritime shipping company CLdN ro-ro SA have entered into a commercial partnership which gives Fjord Line access to CLdN's European network for the transport of freight and cargo.
Effective from mid-February, CLdN will stop in Hirtshals in Denmark on a weekly basis on their shipping route between Zeebrugge in Belgium and Gothenburg in Sweden. This opens new possibilities for Fjord Line's transport of freight and cargo on its Bergen-Stavanger-Hirtshals and Langesund-Hirtshals routes.
The partnership with CLdN means that Fjord Line's cargo department can now offer fast and cost efficient shipping to and from Zeebrugge, where there are frequent onward connections by sea to London (Purfleet) and Killingholme in the UK.
Similarly, Fjord Line can offer transport of freight and cargo between Gothenburg in Sweden and Bergen, Stavanger and Langesund in Norway.
"Our partnership with CLdN starts an exciting chapter for expanded freight and cargo transport by sea between Norway and central European ports. We look forward to developing these new shipping solutions, and offering our current and future customers new and exciting possibilities," says Rune Hetland, cargo manager in Fjord Line.
