In cooperation with Finnlines and Transfennica, Girteka is now offering services from Hanko in Finland to Rostock and Lübeck in Germany, covering almost 1,000 km across the Baltic Sea. 

Girteka says the service is available seven days a week.

“By strategically transferring a portion of road freight in the direction from Finland to Germany through sea routes, we not only alleviate the pressure on heavily congested highways but also contribute significantly to lowering CO2 emissions. So far with this new service, we managed to save more than 330 thousand kg of CO2 emissions, covering 350 thousand kilometres” – explains Adele Lasionytė, Head of the Business Unit at Girteka.

The company adds that the service aims to “elevate Girteka’s drivers’ comfort and job satisfaction”. By facilitating shorter, more localized routes, Girteka is not only reducing its environmental impact but also “enhancing the working conditions for their valued drivers”.

As the logistics industry faces the dual challenges of decarbonization and maintaining a competitive edge, multimodal and intermodal transportation options are emerging as increasingly viable alternatives to traditional road freight.

“Looking into the future, we see considerable potential in expanding our multimodal and intermodal services. As the interconnectedness of global supply chains increases, we are actively investigating additional routes to connect Northern Europe with other continental regions. This strategy aligns with our customers’ objectives, which extend beyond decarbonisation to encompass overall efficiency and stakeholder benefits, – whether it is clients, partners, or our team, particularly, our drivers. This multi-faceted approach to logistics exemplifies our commitment to responsible business practices,” says Lasionytė.
