Fjord Line

FjordLine_logo_farge negativ_RGB.jpg

Fjord Line is a modern shipping company that offers safe and comfortable transport between Norway and the rest of Europe. The company is expanding rapidly as a result of additional tonnage and expansion of services for passengers and cargo carriers.

In addition to passenger traffic, Fjord Line carries all types of commercial vehicles and freight. These are handled by Fjord Line's cargo departments in Norway and Denmark.

Fjord Line was established in 1993 and has today around 600 employees, of which 170 work on land in Bergen, Stavanger, Egersund, Langesund, Kristiansand, Hirtshals, Sandefjord and Strömstad and 430 work at sea year-round. The workforce increases between April and September by about 150 employees.

Fjord Line has bonds listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange. Rickard Ternblom has been CEO of Fjord Line since 2015.

Fjord Line's fleet
In July 2013, the first of two new and environmentally friendly cruise ferries, MS Stavangerfjord was put in operation. Its sister ship MS Bergensfjord had its first sailing in March 2014. The ships service the routes between Bergen, Stavanger and Hirtshals, and between Hirtshals and Langesund with daily departures throughout the year.

A new route between Sandefjord in Norway and Strömstad in Sweden was launched on 20 June 2014. On this crossing a modernized MS Oslofjord makes two round trips a day all year round.

During the extended summer season, the high speed catamaran HSC Fjord Cat sails the express line between Kristiansand in Norway and Hirtshals in Denmark.

MS Stavangerfjord and MS Bergensfjord are the first and largest cruise ferries in the world to use "single fuelled LNG engines", meaning that the ships are powered exclusively by liquefied natural gas (LNG). This environmental initiative means that Fjord Line lies in the forefront of new and more stringent emissions regulations, and the environmental benefits will be welcomed along the coast and in the four ports served by the cruise ferries.

The major environmental benefits are:
92% reduction in NOx emissions
23% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
100% reduction in sulfur emissions
98% reduction in particle emissions

Royal Arctic Line

RAL logo Red

Royal Arctic Line is Greenland's principal shipping line. A fleet of modern cargo vessels operates a liner service between 13 ports in Greenland and foreign destinations. The company also provides a full range of forwarding and storage services and undertakes specialist transport and support assignments for official Greenland agencies and private-sector companies. Royal Arctic Line is owned by the Government of Greenland.

In the harsh conditions of the Arctic, special resources, experience and skills are necessary to operate shipping and forwarding services at the levels of efficiency and reliability expected by the world business community.

Royal Arctic Line's fleet of specially strengthened vessels and modern on-shore handling equipment are operated by employees who have the training, experience and the motivation to serve their international customers and the local Greenlandic communities. And we take pride in doing the best possible job.

A modern fleet

Royal Arctic Line's fleet of five modern cargo vessels, of which three have double hulls, have been built to withstand the harshest imaginable climatic conditions. They are equipped with state-of-the-art control and navigational instrumentation, as well as with on-board container-handling equipment that make them independent of on-shore handling facilities.

A full range of services

Royal Arctic Line's range of activities goes far beyond the provision of liner services. They also include:

  • Forwarding, distribution, and storage

  • Support for oil and minerals exploration

  • Logistics services for civil engineering projects

  • Ice surveillance

  • Historical and geological research

Efficiency in every task, large or small

One of Royal Arctic Line's important strengths lies in the fact that our customers range in size from the world's largest companies to individuals living in Greenland's small coastal communities. On one hand, this means that we must maintain levels of service and efficiency that satisfy the most rigorous international standards. On the other, we recognise the importance of the personal touch.

We have made a substantial investment in the handling and storage facilities at our on-shore sites which, as a result, are among the most up-to-date in the world. Our computerized management system ensures that every consignment is fully documented and monitored in detail from beginning to end

The Royal Greenland Trade Department had a state monopoly until 1950 and existed up to 1985, when it was converted to the export company Proeks (later Royal Greenland).

In 1979, the Greenland Home Rule Government took over the corporation and in 1990, it was formed as an independent limited company. Today, Royal Greenland is considered the economic flagship of Greenland.

For centuries, Royal Warrants have been granted to companies and individuals servicing and supplying the Royal Family and the Royal Household. In 1985, Royal Greenland was granted such a warrant and we are proud to be a steady supplier of quality seafood to the Royal Danish Court.

Royal Greenland aspires to meet the needs of the modern consumer. We do so by combining our unique history and our high standards of quality with the finest seafood from Greenland and around the world.

We offer a broad range of the finest seafood

Delivery reliability and local presence

Quality, trustworthiness and delivery reliability are key concepts for Royal Greenland. We trust in local knowledge and we do our business with local presence and experience. That is why Royal Greenland has local sales offices in several European countries, as well as in Japan and China. We also have our own processing facilities in Greenland, Denmark, Germany, Poland and Canada.
