SOL Continent Line and P&O Ferries have joined forces to establish a new service between the Port of Gothenburg and the ports of Tilbury and Teesport. This new collaborative venture involves the trans-shipment of freight at the Belgian port of Zeebrugge, to which both companies have regular direct services.
Four SOL Continent Line ships depart each week from the Ro-Ro Terminal in Gothenburg bound for Zeebrugge. P&O Ferries has daily departures from Zeebrugge to the UK ports of Tilbury and Teesport.
This new arrangement is particularly important as the United Kingdom is Sweden’s third-largest export market. in 2014, Swedish exports to the UK totalled 80 billion Kronor, equivalent to 7.2% of total Swedish export volumes.
