Wasaline is investing in Cargo, Aurora Botnia is here with 1,500 lane maters for Cargo
The cargo traffic is very important for Wasaline, which has shown its importance especially during the pandemic for having regular traffic across the Kvarken strait. The number of departures has increased and the new vessel Aurora Botnia, built in Rauma in Finland entered traffic in 2021. It is one of te most environmentally friendy Ropax on earth.
The new vessel is tailored for cargo transportation across the Kvarken. With the new vessel, we have have increased cargo capacity, have faster crossing time, increased possibilities for special transports and have good capacity during all 12 months of the year. We also have more frequency in the form of increased departures. The CO2 footprint per ton has decreased when Aurora Botnia started its traffic and this makes transports more environmentally friendly for the manufacturing industry.
From the port of Umeå there are excellent possibilities for intermodal transports by connecting directly from the port to the Swedish and international railway network.
Wasaline operates daily between Vaasa in Finland and Umeå in Sweden.
