///SCANDINAVIA Tschudi offers a tracking option

North Sea shipping and transport company Tschudi Logistics is now offering the option of GPS tracking of containers and trailers


demand for GPS traceability for high-value and excise cargo. It includes online tracking,

customisable waypoint alarms and a SMS warning function triggered by opening of container doors. According to Tschudi, thea service has been warmly welcomed by trial users for their high value shipments. Tschudi

Logistics offers a

weekly sailing to and from the UK and Continent

to Norway,

Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, Russia

and the

Caucasus Republics. In addition to the shipping

services, the company can arrange pre- and onward

transport by road or rail as far afield as Russia and central Asia. Although the Tschudi family

originates from Switzerland, it is today a privately owned company operating in the maritime and transport sector. It is a relative newcomer

on the North sea and, says the company’s commercial manager, Amber Bensley, “we have spent the last

market and the Baltic Line was relatively unknown as a door- door

five years building and creating Tschudi service and more of a

feeder service which we have turned around and changed to

“we have spent the last five years building

and creating Tschudi and we are very proud of what we have all achieved ”

and we are very proud of what we have all achieved. The Norway service was a brand new line coming into the

a predominantly to a door-door market.” Both lines are making a profit, an achievement enough in the current market, she adds.

The perfect choice FOR SCANDINAVIA

New ships

rejuvenate Finnlines

Finnlines is about to complete its six-vessel ro ro newbuilding program when it receives the two last ships by the end of the year. A line spokesman said: “With a very young and efficient fleet, Finnlines is in a very competitive position to meet present and future challenges. The design of the newbuildings also enables an even broader cargo scope.” There will be a reshuffling

of the tonnage during October causing some changes

in the

schedules. The NordöLink service between Travemünde in Germany and Malmo in southern Sweden will get more capacity and Gdynia-Helsinki and Rostock-Helsinki will be operated directly as improved

individual shuttle services. The direct connection between Rostock in Germany and the Finnish capital Helsinki reduces the transit time considerably, says Finnlines. But the market is even more

volatile than last year, and the Eurozone troubles have had an impact even in these regions. The outlook for next year is modest but further volatility is expected. The market is very dependent on the development of the German economy. The UK market meanwhile

is reasonably stable, though the

recent successful

of services between Hull and St Petersburg “was definitely a stimulation”.
