The shortsea shipping company Samskip is expanding its new Baltic Sea service, which was only launched last fall.

Since the weekend, the company has taken “the next step in the strategic development of its Baltic Sea traffic”, Samskip has announced.[ds_preview].

The capacity of the service has been increased and the Lithuanian port of Klaipeda has been added to the network. The measure is based on the success of the service to date.

Samskip deploys two 803 TEU freighters

As part of the expanded Baltic Sea service, Samskip will increase capacity by deploying two 803 TEU container vessels and add the Lithuanian port of Klaipeda to its fixed weekly schedule connecting the UK and the Netherlands with Finland and the Baltic States.

In addition, the shipping company plans to relocate the UK port of call from Hull to the neighbouring Humber port of Immingham. “This move guarantees the integrity of the timetable and enables an even smoother connection to Samskip’s own truck fleet in Immingham for the ‘last mile’,” it continues. Samskip vessels will depart from Klaipeda every Saturday morning and arrive in Immingham three days later on Tuesday morning.
