The new tonnage will double the existing offer on the route with an increased capacity of 36 000 trailers annually.
Oslo is one of Europe's fastest growing cities and has set high goals for environmental friendly and efficient transport of goods.

With the new ro-ro product, Color Line Cargo will be able to shift a huge quantity of trucks and trailers from road to seaway and this will be an attractive solution for both importers and exporters. The vessel has 45% of its capacity at the weather deck, so this will be the perfect solution for the IMDG industry and meet all their transportation requirements. Color Line Cargo is aiming for an increased role in the logistics solutions for the European trading business. We will be an integrated provider for the transportation solutions future needs.
The ship will have 6 weekly evening departures, 3 in each direction and the route will have roughly 22 hour sailing time.
