Stopping the shortsea route between Norway and Sweden on 29 October 2023 is a strategic move to concentrate operations around the sailing routes between Norway and Denmark.
Fjord Line wants:
- To further develop the shipping company around tourism products.
- To continue to be a central player for both passenger traffic and freight transport between Norway and the continent.
Ro-Pax OSLOFJORD is for sale.
The same route will still be operated by Color Line, with one vessel: COLOR HYBRID.
The other route vessel, COLOR VIKING, ceased operations on the Sandefjord – Strömstad route on 22 November 2022.
The route was very popular amongst Norwegians for shopping in Sweden.
