The Swedish arm of the Dutch shipping line has launched a new ro-ro service between the two seaports, offering three departures/week.
The connection is served by the 108 m-long and 17 m-wide Midas, owned by Godby Shipping, that has a total cargo carrying capacity of 1,032 lane metres across three decks.
"[…] the base cargo on this ro-ro line are concrete elements and building equipment loaded on trailers," David von Platen, Line Manager, Wagenborg Shipping Sweden, said.
He furthered, "In addition, the liner offers possibilities to transport various cargo between Riga and Oxelösund, such as trailers, both accompanied as well as unaccompanied, but also general cargo loaded on mafis such as boards, pallets, forest products, containers, coils and project cargo. Also, other types of ro-ro cargo such as vehicles, mobile cranes, caravans, campers, and excavators can be loaded and easily shipped both ways."
