Swedish Orient Line announced today that the cargo volume on the Gothenburg-Zeebrugge route has almost doubled in the first quarter 2017 compared to the same period last year. Due to the high growth and demand of cargo on this route, SOL has significantly increased the capacity and sailing frequency to seven sailings per week in each direction. During the peak periods the company has offered two more additional sailings per week to serve their customer’s needs.
“The route between Gothenburg and Zeebrugge has shown a very positive development since the beginning of 2016. With the additional sailings, we can fulfil the growing demand of our customers. It is always our objective to offer clients the best possible service. To further improve the booking process and the usability for our clients , we are currently developing our online booking system”, says Ragnar Johansson, Managing Director, Svenska Orient Linien AB.
The connection between Gothenburg and Zeebrugge was added to SOL Continent Line’s network in November 2014 as the result of a cooperation with Stora Enso. Three vessels with a capacity of 2.600 lane metres each make the crossing in approximately 34 hours. All sailings are calling PSA Wielingendok in Zeebrugge and the RoRo Terminal in Gothenburg.
