The new ser­vice will be incor­po­ra­ted into our Bal­tic Sea trade ser­vices with a focus to-and-from the UK, Ire­land, Nor­way as well as Ger­man Ruhr and the Bene­lux area. In addi­ti­on, the new capa­ci­ty allows us to make com­pe­ti­ti­ve con­nec­tions to-and-from Kau­nas, the indus­tri­al heart of the regi­on as well as Vil­ni­us, the capi­tal of Lithuania.

From our ter­mi­nal in Duis­burg, we can con­nect direct­ly to our Pan-European net­work. The high fre­quen­cy of train ser­vice allows us to offer a mar­ket com­pe­ti­ti­ve door-to-door tran­sit time of 9–10 days from Lithua­nia to the UK; a 4‑day impro­ve­ment com­pared to our pre­vious ser­vice from Lithuania.

Samskip Regio­nal Direc­tor – Bal­tic Sea, Johan van der Pijl, “At Samskip, Pio­nee­ring, Sus­taina­bi­li­ty and Customer-Centricity are at the very core of our DNA. We are hap­py to com­bi­ne the­se core values in the new inter­mo­dal ser­vice from Kaunas.

We lis­ten­ed careful­ly to the requi­re­ments of our cus­to­mers, and we are deligh­ted to offer our cus­to­mers the chan­ce to com­pe­ti­tively con­nect Lithua­nia with their core mar­kets in Euro­pe, while redu­cing their car­bon emissions.”
