Starting from the end-March 2022, the container carrier will weekly connect the Baltic seaports of Klaipėda, Gdynia and Gothenburg and the North Sea Bremerhaven with New York, Philadelphia and Norfolk.
The transit time to NY from Klaipėda will be 15 days, Gdynia - 13, and Gothenburg - 11.
"The US is Sweden's largest export market outside Europe, and also a growing one. This direct traffic is a very welcome addition that further strengthens the Port of Gothenburg as the guarantor for Swedish industry's access to the world," Claes Sundmark, Vice President Sales & Marketing, the Gothenburg Port Authority, commented.
