Viasea Shipping AS offers container transport in Europe to freight forwarders, tank operators, as well as directly to importers and exporters. The main markets will be Norway and the BeNeLux. Other focus areas will be Nordrhein-Westfalen in Germany, North of France, as well as England.

The ship will have her first departure from Rotterdam November 04, 2016 with arrival in Oslo Monday morning November 07, 2016.

The schedule offers predictable and dependable departure and arrival times. The ship will call ports with dedicated short sea terminals to avoid massive and congested deep sea terminals.

Viasea is the only operator offering a dedicated short sea concept. Focus is punctuality and predictability - being a realistic alternative to road freight in most of Europe. Viasea is aiming to act as a small, but flexible player, with the possibility to make rapid decisions. Trade will be purely B2B.
