    Information gap

    In the last three years, Shortsea Promotion Centre has asked the cargo owners in Norway about their experiences with logistical planning and execution. One of the recurring topics was how Shortsea was more complicated than road-based logistics and demanded more time and resources from the logistical departments.

    When asked if they had experienced not being able to find relevant information about logistical solutions to their company, as much as 31% said yes. >90% of these experiences were made in Shortsea and rail solutions.

    What information was difficult to obtain? Schedules, price, punctuality, partner information, and availability of other services. Shortsea Schedules is an answer to some of these shortcomings.

    Simplifies your logistical planning

    We aim to provide cargo owners with unbiased, door-to-door search results and relevant contact information, streamlining the planning process. Shortsea Schedules is a three-step process:

    1. Search door-to-door (from your factory to your customer)  
    2. Evaluate the search results and identify the best transport solutions for your demand
    3. Get the relevant contact information and be on your way
