Eimskip has chartered in a 500-teu vessel as it gears up to make changes to its service linking the Faroe Islands with Scotland.
The Gray Line, Eimskip’s dedicated run between the Faroe Islands and Scrabster in Scotland, will have new port calls in Århus in Denmark, Halmstad in Sweden and Swinoujscie in Poland.
“There has been substantial growth in transported volume to Iceland in recent months and further growth is expected. Transport volume in the North Atlantic has been affected by the Russian embargo. The change of the sailing schedule is made to adjust it to ever-changing market needs,” Eimskip said in a release. The change will increase the capacity of the company’s liner vessel fleet by 6%.
Gylfi Sigfússon, president and CEO, of Eimskip commented: “Transportation needs are constantly changing and it is important for us to be able to fulfill them.”
