TSG AB strengthens its short sea shipping service


Thor Svecon Group (TSG) AB is expanding its fleet with an additional vessel on the Baltic and North Sea.

The vessel will be deployed on the Stockholm/Norvik – Hull – Rotterdam route.

TSG AB’s subsidiary SUN Line is investing in strengthening its service and is adding a vessel to the Stockholm/Norvik-Hull-Rotterdam route from 8 November 2022.

The company has seen a continuous increase in demand from freight buyers who want to transport goods by sea between Sweden, the Netherlands and England.

An additional vessel means higher container capacity, increased flexibility and faster lead times.

TSG already has the vessels Alrek, Frej and Odin calling at Västerås – Amsterdam – Hull.

“We have seen the need for a fourth vessel for some time and now that time has come. Starting from Sweden’s newest port, Stockholm/Norvik, feels like a natural step and completely in line with our goal to strengthen our position in east coast shipping,” commented Eric Hjalmarsson, CEO of TSG AB.

“The extended connectivity from Stockholm/Norvik to Rotterdam is going to provide our customer more options and even more flexible and faster transit to the major hub port in Europe. A direct linkage to Rotterdam would enable connectivity to new services and to different parts of the World. We are very happy to see that SUN Line is seeing the benefits of starting up a new service that will give their customers the fastest transit to the Greater Stockholm Area”, said Lawrence Yam, CEO of Hutchison Ports Stockholm AB.

In 2020 the Port of Stockholm struck a deal with Hutchison Ports Stockholm, Mälarhamnar and Wallenius Marine to launch a new inland shipping network.
