Höegh Autoliners has announced its return to Gothenburg with a regular direct service to South Africa and Oceania.

The service started this March with sailings every other week.

To service the Swedish import and export industry, Höegh Autoliners will call at Gothenburg directly on its East Asia to Europe run. With direct dockings to Gothenburg, customers will have the possibility to connect to a global trade network via ports on the Continent or direct to South Africa and Oceania.

“We are happy to be back with our new service in Gothenburg to support the demand in cargo flows in and out of Sweden, for both the automotive and high and heavy industries,” said Höegh Autoliners chief sales officer, Oskar Orstadius.

“We are working closely with our customers to offer sustainable and green solutions and are fully committed to lead the way for greener and more sustainable transportation.”

Höegh Autoliners maintains it operates some of the greenest and largest Pure Car and Truck Carrier (PCTC) vessels in the world. The New Horizon series can transport up to 8,500 car equivalent units.

The shipper also says the vessels emit only half the CO2 per car transported compared to a standard vehicle carrier.
