Fjord Line is upset: the City Council of Sandefjord (Norway) has deprived the company of sailing times 07:00 and 13:30, as from next year. In practice, the decision means that Fjord Line will continue with the sailings they have today, departing Sandefjord 08:30 and 15:20.
Since the introduction of OSLOFJORD on the line between Sandefjord and Strømstad in 2014, Fjord Line says it was concerned about receiving an equal treatment (the competitor is Color Line).
Fjord Line has also requested the municipality to carry out upgrades in the port. Fjord Line guaranteed to cover all costs of the upgrade. Sandefjord declined the offer, without giving any justification, says Rickard Ternblom, CEO Fjord Line.
