On Thursday 25 June, we had the first sailing from Frederikshavn to Oslo with Crown Seaways. A day of celebration. Not only the passengers were looking forward to the reopening with the new additional call in Frederikshavn but also the Freight market had been waiting in anticipation.
Kasper Svenningsen, Managing Director, Ferry Norway, says: “We have received a lot of requests on the new Frederikshavn-Oslo route resulting in many new quotations and agreements. The very first booking was made by our new customer, DS Stålkonstruktion AS, who we welcomed on board on the first crossing.”
DS Stålkonstruktion handles the production of steel constructions from the drawing board to installation at the building site. However, they also do their own logistics operating specialized trucks with cranes that can carry overlength dimensions up to a total of 30-35 meters.
“It was a great pleasure to welcome Torben Larsen, Assembly Manager from DS Stålkonstruktion. He had taken the time outside of the office to personally drive the first truck on board in Frederikshavn and he was also the first Freight customer driving ashore in Oslo. On the crossing we had the opportunity to discuss freight and logistics, sharing knowledge and setting the scene for the future cooperation” says Kasper.
