Established in 1976, Transfennica is a modern liner-shipping carrier operating an ice-strengthened ro-ro fleet with the fastest total lead times between continental Europe, Estonia, Finland and Russia.
With a speed of 20+ knots, the route from Antwerp and Tilbury to Hamina or from Lübeck to St. Petersburg by a Transfennica ship (with overnight sailings from Hamina to St. Petersburg) takes only 2.5 days. This coupled with extensive information technology back-up plus fast cargo handling, flexibility and safety, naturally extends rail/road supply chains (e.g. to/from northern Italy, Switzerland) and supersedes the others (e.g. to/from France, Spain). The line's fleet incorporates a unique con-ro solution with a dedicated container storage section on each vessel. Cargo types: unaccompanied trailers, containers (own 20', 40' and 45' high-cube pallet-wide containers), out-of-gauge/heavy and project goods, new cars and machinery (rolling and static), break-bulk on roll-trailers and cassettes, perishables, chemicals, forest products, all hazardous goods (IMCO class 1-9).
Transfennica runs its own offices in Amsterdam, Antwerp, Gdynia, Kotka, Helsinki, Lübeck, Paldiski, St. Petersburg, Tilbury with some 120 skilled persons working in active partnerships with the company's customers. Transfennica is a member of the Spliethoff Group, offering transhipment opportunities and further ro-ro connections.
