Swedish Orient Line launches new service between the ports of Ventspils, Zeebrugge and Tilbury
Swedish Orient Line (SOL) announced the launch of a new shipping route between the ports of Ventspils, Zeebrugge and Tilbury, the company said in its press release.
The new route is an expansion of the activities of SOL from their Zeebrugge hub. Furthermore, SOL's service to Ventspils uses the existing connections of P&O Ferries in Zeebrugge, to offer their clients the possibility to ship loads from Ventspils via Zeebrugge directly to the ports of Hull and Teesport.
The first sailing is scheduled on 21 January 2017. The first vessel will depart from the port of Ventspils on Saturday 21 January, will arrive in Zeebrugge on Tuesday the 24th, will sail through to Tilbury and arrive on the 25th. The vessel then returns to Zeebrugge the next day, to depart again for Ventspils for a new loop. This weekly RoRo service will carry trailers, containers and other rolling cargo as well as break bulk cargo loaded on rolltrailers.
