The company also plans to launch services between Oradea and Constanta, linking Central Eastern Europe to the Black Sea, and expand its services into Bulgaria, Serbia, Greece and Turkey, thereby making its network one of the most expansive in Europe and Eurasia.


The 48-hour service to Lotz, being offered in partnership with Italy’s Transmec Group,will initially offer two departures each way per week, before increasing to three by mid-2020. The service will at first use containers with a maximum payload of 24 tonnes, and swap bodies will be introduced if there is enough demand. Dangerous goods (RID) can also be transported on the service. P&O Ferrymasters is partnering with Italy’s Transmec Group, the co-owner of the Oradea terminal, to deliver the new service.


Color Line is teaming up with German UIRR operator Kombiverkehr for a new ro-rail multimodal service linking Norway with Southern Europe destinations, over Oslo and Kiel. Kombiverkehr trains, with a capacity for 30 trailers, will connect with arrivals of freight ro-ro COLOR CARRIERS, ex FINNCARRIER) in Kiel. The train connection takes between 45 and 67 hours, according to destination in Southern Europe.


Trond Kleivdal, CEO of Color Line said: "The new liner service is not only ecological, generating 50% fewer emissions than a ferry/truck connection, but also time-saving."
