Color Line AS, Hav Lines AS and Viasea AS have been granted subsidies from the Norwegian Government (Kystverket), to move more freight from the road to the sea.
For Color Line, the only ferry operator in this project, ‘Road to Sea’ is about establishing a freight-only ro-ro line between Oslo and Kiel.
The start of the new route is set to January 9, 2019. In total, 1.4 million tonnes of goods could be transferred during the subsidized period.
In July Color Line already announced the purchase of ro-ro FINNCARRIER for this new route.
