Cargo capacity on Finnish sea routes will increase when VIKING GLORY enters service in 2021. The vessel will replace AMORELLA and provide about 500 lane metres of additional capacity on the Turku–Stockholm route.

Key figures:

  • 133,000 cargo units on the northern Baltic Sea annually
  • Cargo market share 4% in 2019

The transportation of lorry drivers has been taken into consideration to a greater extent than previously in planning GLORY’s interior. In the quiet part of VIKING GLORY, lorry drivers have their own section, which includes some 70 cabins as well as sauna facilities and a lounge,” says Viking Line’s freight director, Harri Tamminen.
