Eimskip adds a ship.

The new service deployment will begin February 19, 2015 when the vessel, MV Selfoss, will join MV Reykjfoss and MV Skogafoss on its “Green Line” route. Originating in Reykjavik, Iceland the vessel will then travel to Argentia, Newfoundland and Labrador.

The next stop will be Halifax before going on to Portland, Maine. This service will also have direct connection with European destinations, including Reykjavik, Iceland, Immingham, United Kingdom and Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

“As a result of this service enhancement, the number of Eimskip calls in Halifax will increase from 13 to 31 calls per year giving our customers additional options for cargo destined and originating in Europe,” said Jeff Simms, Managing Director, Eimskip Canada Inc. “This is good news for our intra-­‐North American customers as well and will provide one more channel for Nova Scotia exporters to move goods into the New England states, acting as a feeder service for the 14 other carriers calling Halifax.” To support the expanded service, Eimskip is planning to open a local office in Halifax.

The inbound rotation for this service will originate in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and include Immingham, United Kingdom; Reykjavik, Iceland; Argentia, Newfoundland and Labrador; Halifax, Nova Scotia and Portland, Maine. The outbound call will start in Portland, Maine and will include Argentia and St. Anthony, Newfoundland and Labrador, Reykjavik, Immingham, and Rotterdam.

About Halifax Shipping News

Halifax Shipping News began in 2008 as a blog called The Armchair Captain. The idea behind it came when I would become curious about the comings and goings in the harbour, and research to find their source. I figured if I was wondering, others would be as well, and so I would blog about them. 5+ years later, here we are. This blog is written by Peter Ziobrowski. Peter is a Senior IT System Architect, and holds a BA in the History & Theory of Architecture,as well as diplomas in Computer System Technology and Information System Security. His personal site can be found at http://www.ziobrowski.net. Peter is available for media interviews on local Maritime issues. He also holds a large collection of photos of shipping subjects from Halifax suitable for publication. You can contact him directly via email at peter@halifaxshippingnews.ca.
