On Wednesday, June 1, Hirtshals Harbour and Zeebrugge Harbour held a transport conference in Hirtshals. Guests had the opportunity to hear about the new cooperation between the two ports and what it might mean for the European and Scandinavian industry - especially the transport sector.

"We have seen the positive prospects offered in CLdN's route between Zeebrugge, Hirtshals and Gothenburg, and thus the potential for development, we in Hirtshals will help come true," said Hirtshals chairman Anker Laden-Andersen, at the end of the conference.

At the conference, the shipping company CldN stated that they plan to expand service on the new route between Hirtshals, Zeebrugge and Gothenburg, which started in February. It has provided new opportunities for shipping companies in North Jutland, Scandinavia and Europe.

In Hirtshals, CLdN's route is linked to Color Line and Fjord Line's routes to Norway and Smyril Line's routes to Iceland and the Faroe Islands. With CLdN's route, Hirtshals is now linked with the routes from Zeebrugge to England, Ireland, Spain and Portugal.

Zeebrugge Harbour's commercial director, Emmanuel van Damme, presented Zeebrugge Harbour and the opportunities the port offers to new transport corridors. Zeebrugge is connected to Paris and Milan by rail and highway. Norway and the northern part of Jutland are connected via Zeebrugge in key destinations in Europe via the ports.
