Stena cuts Nynäshamn-Gdynia service

The crossing between Karlskrona on Sweden’s south coast and Gdynia is much shorter than the one between Gdynia and Nynäshamn, which is on the east coast and is part of Ports of Stockholm AB. Therefore, to the extent that Nynäshamn serves the Stockholm region, road journies will become longer.


The main reason given for the closure of the Nynäshamn route is the substantial changes in tonnage introduced into Stena Line’s network. “The market is developing quickly and requires increasing flexibility. Our decision is a clear sign of this trend," said Niclas Mårtensson, CEO of Stena Line.


"We still have a very strong demand for freight capacity between Sweden and Poland, but we are in a position where we can plan for the future and have decided concentrate our investments in the Southern Baltic region on the line Karlskrona-Gdynia, where we forecast continuing growth in the coming years.”
