As from Saturday, June 9, TT Line will send a ro-pax ferry from Trelleborg to Klaipeda, and vice versa, on a weekly basis.
The timetable shows a Saturday morning departure from Sweden and an evening arrival in Lithuania. The return voyage starts in Klaipeda at 01:30, with an arrival in Trelleborg at 17:30.
One of the reasons for this new route is the fact that freight is not allowed on German motorways on Sundays. Most of the ferries have a layover in Trelleborg. This created the possibility to start a new line.
Another reason is the trade growth between Scandinavia, Denmark, Baltic States, Belarus, Ukraine and Russia.
Port of Klaipeda is the largest ro-ro hub in the Baltic States (with a strong presence of DFDS). It offers excellent access to deep hinterland, e.g. Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Belarus and Russia.
The service will be for both accompanied and unaccompanied freight.
Via transshipment the cargo can be rerouted to Lübeck – Travemünde, Rostock and Swinoujscie.
