Stena Line GmbH & Co. KG is planning to relocate its headquarters from Rostock to Hamburg in spring 2020 and concentrate its commercial business there.

With the planned relocation of customer services to the sister company Baltic RoRo Services GmbH, the operational unit in the group is also to be strengthened.

“Hamburg is one of the world’s leading locations for the maritime industry, a logistic hub in the middle of Europe and one of the fastest growing economic and digital locations in Germany. Since we will be relying even more heavily on integrated logistics concepts, intermodal offers and transport chains from a single source in the freight sector, the proximity to other companies in the Stena Group such as Stena Glovis (Hamburg) and Stena Logistics GmbH (Bremen) creates potential for even closer cooperation, “says Ron Gerlach, MD of Stena Line Germany.

The Stena Line Group plans to move the RoPax MECKLENBURG-VORPOMMERN from the German to the Swedish register and to have it operated by Stena Line Scandinavia AB in the future.
