The exten­ded ser­vice fol­lows the suc­cessful estab­lish­ment of Samskip’s dedi­ca­ted Bal­tic Sea short­sea ser­vice in Novem­ber 2023. Sin­ce its kick-off, the Samskip Bal­tic Sea ser­vice has pro­vi­ded market-leading sche­du­ling relia­bi­li­ty sup­port­ed by unri­va­led Cus­to­mer Experience.

As part of the exten­ded Bal­tic Sea ser­vice, Samskip will increase capa­ci­ty by deploy­ing two 803 TEU con­tai­ner ves­sels on the trade rou­te and add the Lithua­ni­an port of Klai­pe­da to the fixed-day weekly sai­ling sche­du­le which con­nects the UK and the Net­her­lands with Fin­land and the Bal­tic States.

In addi­ti­on, Samskip will relo­ca­te its UK port of call from Hull to the neigh­bor­ing Hum­ber port of Imming­ham. This move fur­ther gua­ran­tees sche­du­le inte­gri­ty, allo­wing for even smoot­her con­nec­ti­vi­ty with Samskip’s owned truck fleet based in Imming­ham for “last mile” deliveries. 

The new­ly exten­ded ser­vice is in ans­wer to cus­to­mer demand for a relia­ble short­sea ser­vice in Fin­land and the Bal­tic Sta­tes com­bi­ned with a strong focus on Cus­to­mer Cen­tri­ci­ty. The­se two core values are now available to Lithua­ni­an export­ers who can bene­fit from market-leading tran­sit times bet­ween Lithua­nia and the UK. Samskip ves­sels will depart from Klai­pe­da every Satur­day mor­ning to arri­ve three days later in Imming­ham on Tues­day morning.

Samskip Regio­nal Direc­tor – Bal­tic Sea, Johan van der Pijl, said: “Ser­vice, relia­bi­li­ty and the con­ti­nuous enhance­ment of our cus­to­mers expe­ri­ence have been and will remain our core values in this cor­ri­dor. Fue­led by the short­sea exper­ti­se in our DNA, our dedi­ca­ti­on to the­se values has dri­ven Samskip to deli­ver market-leading relia­bi­li­ty and cus­to­mer expe­ri­ence sin­ce the kick-off of our Bal­tic Sea ser­vice last Novem­ber. We are exci­ted to roll out the­se cus­to­mer focu­sed values to the Lithua­ni­an mar­ket. Adding our own truck fleet based in Imming­ham, we are able offer cus­to­mers a care-free and seam­less door-to-door trans­port experience.”
