Strategic cooperation between Stena Line and Mann Lines

As of November 1st a new cooperation will start between the ferry company Stena Line and the shipping, logistics and forwarding company Mann Lines. The goal of the cooperation is to offer added value to the customers within the area of logistics services via the extensive joint route network in the North Sea and Baltics. In addition Stena RoRo will charter the RoRo vessel STENA FORETELLER to Mann Lines.

Stena Line is with its already extensive route network always working towards developing its offering within logistics services as well as geographically. Mann Lines offers today a liner RoRo service between the ports of Harwich, Cuxhaven, Tallinn, Turku and Bremerhaven. In addition Mann Lines offers a container service between Rotterdam and the Baltics. Mann Lines also offers services within inland distribution and other logistics.

“Mann Lines is a strong player within logistics and in business areas where we are not as strong. Areas which I here refer to are automotive, project loads and the high & heavy segment. Stena Line complements in other areas. From both Stena Line as well as Mann Lines we see that this cooperation will be beneficial for customers at both companies”, says Anders Peterson, Business Development Manager, Stena Line.

At the core of the cooperation between Stena Line and Mann Lines lies, initially, three key parts. Firstly a fixed space charter to Stena Line on Mann Line ship. Secondly, Mann Lines will act as sales agent when it comes to Stena Lines route network. Thirdly, Stena RoRo will charter the RoRo vessel STENA FORETELLER to Mann Lines. The STENA FORETELLER will enter her new service for Mann Lines in January 2015

“We are really looking forward to see the results of this cooperation, since it will be very beneficial for both current and potential customers and it will increase cargo flows for both companies. Stena Line is a perfect partner for us to cooperate with regarding cargo flows to and from the Benelux countries”, says Bill Binks, Managing Director for Mann Lines.
