“This Is Why Our New Shipping Company Will Be A Success”

Quote from Ragnar Johansson, CEO Wallenius SOL.

What began as an idea in a port in Kotka has now, after ten years, resulted in a completely new Swedish shipping company. The ambition is to secure long-term infrastructure for the industry in the Gulf of Bothnia.

Mr Ragnar Johansson, managing director SOL Lines

Although Swedish Orient Line, or SOL, exists since 1911, it is only recently that the Swedish company started a liner service. In 2010, one of its five divisions –SOL Continent Line– began to operate a regular ro-ro service between Helsingborg and Travemünde. Now SOL Continent Line has expended significantly, and has become a main player in the ro-ro liner business.
SOL Continent Line’s managing director Ragnar Johansson invited us onboard ro-ro vessel SCHIEBORG in the Belgian port of Zeebrugge, where we could witness how the ship was jam-packed with cargo.
