New shipping container connection between Gävle and Poland

The new service, which is run by Maersk Line subsidiary Seago Line, links Gävle with Gdańsk in Poland and Norrköping in Sweden.

Maersk Line vessels depart DCT Gdańsk on Saturdays and arrive two days later at Gävle's Container Terminal Yilport, following a stop at Norrköping's Pampus Container Terminal. The new short sea service is served by two 2006-built sisterships, Adelina D and Annaba, each offering around 1,500 Twenty-Foot Equivalent Unit (TEU) of capacity.

"We are happy to offer our customers in both key Baltic markets a solution that meets their specific transportation needs and enables further trade growth. Main Polish export commodities to Sweden include electro machineries and metallurgical products, followed by chemicals and agricultural products - all of which have a significant potential for conversion into containerized transport," said Wojciech Muchlado, Seago Line Managing Director for East Central Europe.
