We are exci­ted to announ­ce the exten­si­on of our rou­te net­work with inter­mo­dal rou­tes span­ning appro­xi­m­ate­ly 3 000 kilo­me­t­res for effi­ci­ent good trans­por­ta­ti­on across Euro­pe. This expan­si­on aims to enhan­ce tran­sit from the sou­thern and sou­thwes­tern Euro­pean regi­ons to the nor­t­hern­most points in Swe­den, spe­ci­fi­cal­ly Umeå via Eskilstuna.

Com­men­cing from 23 May 2024, we enhan­ce our ser­vice offe­rings by inte­gra­ting addi­tio­nal rou­tes into our exis­ting Gothenburg-Kiel and Trelleborg-Rostock cor­ri­dors. This expan­si­on holds par­ti­cu­lar signi­fi­can­ce for the nor­t­hern Swe­dish regi­ons of Väs­ter­bot­ten and Norr­bot­ten, as well as the cen­tral Mälard­a­len region.

Fre­d­rik Johans­son, Group Mana­ger Inter­mo­dal and Ship­ping Logi­stics empha­si­zes the dual bene­fits of this initiative

“Cus­to­mers gain access to relia­ble long-distance ship­ping ser­vices through a sin­gle part­ner. Moreo­ver, the expan­si­on of our nor­t­hern rou­te net­work faci­li­ta­tes fur­ther trans­por­ta­ti­on links into Väs­ter­bot­ten and Norr­bot­ten counties.”

Expan­si­on through Europe

Through stra­te­gic part­ner­ships, we ensu­re seam­less con­nec­ti­vi­ty for sou­thern Euro­pean desti­na­ti­ons via our two pri­ma­ry inter­mo­dal corridors:

Trelleborg-Rostock Cor­ri­dor

  • Direct link to cities like Vero­na (Ita­ly), Bettem­bourg (Luxem­bourg)
  • Tran­sit through Bettem­bourg (Luxem­bourg) to Lyon, and Le Bou­lou (France).

Gothenburg-Kiel Cor­ri­dor

  • Dedi­ca­ted rou­te to Vero­na (Ita­ly).
  • Gate­way traf­fic via Ham­burg to Lud­wigs­ha­fen, Munich and Duis­burg (Ger­ma­ny).

The most exten­si­ve rou­te within this net­work stret­ches from Le Bou­lou in France to Umeå in Swe­den, cove­ring an impres­si­ve distance of appro­xi­m­ate­ly 3,200 kilometers.

Ste­na Line and Wasa­li­ne Col­la­bo­ra­te to Extend Rou­te to Vaa­sa, Finland

In an exci­ting col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with Wasa­li­ne we are exten­ding the inter­mo­dal rou­te to include Vaa­sa, Fin­land, via sea trans­port. This stra­te­gic move offers sub­stan­ti­al bene­fits for our cus­to­mers by seam­less­ly con­nec­ting rail and sea rou­te solu­ti­ons bet­ween Umeå and Vaasa.

“We have work­ed dili­gent­ly to stream­li­ne sche­du­les and pro­ces­ses, enhan­cing the over­all effi­ci­en­cy of the trans­port chain. This stra­te­gic move unders­cores our com­mit­ment to faci­li­ta­ting acces­si­ble and effi­ci­ent ship­ping solu­ti­ons for our cus­to­mers”, says Fre­d­rik Johans­son on the collaboration.

Tony Ehrs, Direc­tor, Freight at Wasa­li­ne who will pro­vi­de the sea con­nec­tion from Umeå to Vaa­sa, Fin­land comm­ents on the extension,

“We are plea­sed to col­la­bo­ra­te clo­se­ly with Ste­na Line to expand inter­mo­dal trans­port to Vaa­sa using our ves­sel, Auro­ra Bot­nia. By using train con­nec­tions to Umeå and con­ti­nuing to Vaa­sa with our envi­ron­men­tal­ly fri­end­ly ves­sel, we can achie­ve emission-neutral trans­por­ta­ti­on for trai­lers and con­tai­ners to and from Vaa­sa”, says Tony at Wasaline.
