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.
