M/V Transfighter
Words: Maritha Arcos

In order to meet the increased demand from several of its customers, WALLENIUS SOL expands its service by strengthening the fleet with a sixth vessel: the MV TransFighter.

THE VESSEL will be deployed in a bi-weekly service on the Oulu – Kokkola – Antwerp – Zeebrugge leg while also adding Port of Rauma as loading port.

“We are pleased to be able to meet our customers’ increased need to ship goods from Rauma but also offer increased container capacity on the Kokkola – Antwerp route,” says Jonas Wåhlin, General Manager, WALLENIUS SOL.

The high load capacity and the ability to combine container cargo, RoRo and StoRo makes the TransFighter a welcome addition to the WALLENIUS SOL fleet.

“In this way, we continue to strengthen our presence in the Gulf of Bothnia, we increase our total capacity and we enable continued growth in the container market,” says Jonas Wåhlin, continuing:

“This is also a way for us to build volume while waiting for our new LNG-powered RoRo vessels to be delivered in the end of 2021.”
