Rederi AB Gotland announces new ferry line between Rostock-Stockholm

This August, Rostock, and Stockholm are going to come closer as Swedish company “Rederi AB Gotland” has announced a new ferry line between the two ports. The company has announced that vessel “Hansa Destinations” (renamed vessel Drotten) will be facilitating passenger and freight traffic between the Swedish capital and Port of Rostock. It takes 18 hours to make the Stockholm-Rostock voyage and as per the announced schedule, initially, the ferry line from Stockholm-Nynashamn will be departing on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays whereas departures from Rostock will be on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays.

The company has plans to offer daily departures from both ports in the future. Excited about the new ferry line, Gernot Tesch, the Managing Director of Rostock Port said that this new connection will put the Port of Rostock forward tremendously. He said that Rostock is growing into a central logistic hub for northern European traffic and all relevant markets of northern Europe have a connection from the Port of Rostock.

Claus Ruhe Madsen, Mayor of Rostock was delighted to see his city grab the new ferry line from other locations. In the ministry’s message, Christian Level, Transport Minister of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, welcomed the announcement.

This new ferry line will be offering an additional choice of transportation to the logistics companies and it will also encourage the modal shift of transport from road to the sea for emission reduction. Emphasizing Sweden’s effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the Government of Sweden under its Eco-bonus scheme has awarded funding for the start-up phase of this ferry line.
