  • Capacity on the 3-ship Nor Lines service between Baltic ports and Norway will be expanded to 4 vessels.
  • Two vessel pairs operating separate schedules.
  • One pair will connect northern Norway with German and Dutch ports, focusing on frozen fish/project cargoes southbound and palletized/project cargoes northbound.
  • The other ship pair will serve importers and exporters in Danish and Polish ports, connecting with Western Norway in the Fredrikstad-Tromsø range, calling weekly northbound and prioritizing southbound calls for reefer/project cargo volumes.
  • The entirely separate Nor Lines’ multipurpose liner service connecting the Netherlands to Norway weekly will add a call at the Dutch port of Velsen. The addition of Velsen as the first Dutch call is also expected to attract northbound palletized and project cargoes. This service is maintained by the LNG-powered vessels KVITBJØRN and KVITNOS.
