OPDR increases Baltic presenceThe Short Sea Shipping & Logistics provider Oldenburg-Portugiesische Dampfschiffs-Rhederei (OPDR) has extended its Baltic Sea Service (BALT) through the formation of new strategic alliances in Scandinavia, the Baltics and Russia. The new BALT Service is specifically designed to ensure a cohesive connection to all other OPDR services and provides both higher frequency and reduced transit times.
"The restructuring of our BALT service through the appointment of four very experienced new Agencies as well as agreements with partner lines gives our Baltic Sea traffic a clear profile and reinforces our presence in this market", states OPDR Trade Manager Matthias Gehle. The BALT service connects all OPDR destinations in North and South Europe as well as North Africa via Hamburg and Rotterdam with the Baltic Sea ports such as Oslo, Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki and Gdynia as well as the Baltic ports and St. Petersburg. "Thanks to our strong partners we can also offer our customers other ports in the Baltic Sea region as well as the whole west coast of Norway", says Matthias Gehle.
North bound cargo will be carried by OPDR’s own vessels to the ports of to Hamburg and Rotterdam. "Due to the smooth cooperation with our northern European partners we reach transit times, for example, of only twelve days between Casablanca and St. Petersburg", says OPDR Trade Analyst Kerstin Helmes-Özgülsen. "Our short transit times are especially suitable for perishable cargo, which we can transport in our state-of-the-art refrigerated containers from door-to-door."
