Our solution

Sustainable maritime transport from Gdynia to Södertälje and Västerås. Three times a week.

Interested in a more sustainable and competitively priced alternative to current long-distance transport options? Lakeway Link is the sole shipping company offering scheduled roll-on/roll-off transport for trailers and high and heavy cargo between Gdynia and Södertälje. Starting in the second half of May 2024, we will operate three weekly departures in each direction. The journey between the two end destinations is approximately 22 hours.


Strategically located ports with excellent connections

A range of destinations are within easy driving distance of Södertälje and the Lake of Mälaren — from the Bergslagen region with its high density of industrial operators to the cities of Uppsala and Gävle, as well as the entirety of central and northern Sweden. To the west, there are excellent road connections to the region of Värmland and to Norway, with Oslo just a 6 hour drive away.

The other end destination of the route, Gdynia, is well-linked to several of Europe’s major transport arteries. Gdynia is also a key transshipment port and a hub for intercontinental maritime traffic.

The M/S Lakeway Express welcomes your cargo onboard

While truck and driver remain at the quay, we take care of transporting your cargo. Our own Swedish-flagged RoRo vessel, M/S Lakeway Express, can carry anything that can be packed onto a trailer or on a mafi, including high and heavy cargo. With a length of 153 meters, and a gross tonnage of 10,471 MT the ship has a carrying capacity of 1624 lane meters or approximately 110 trailers.

A more sustainable option

Compared to conventional transportation by road, Lakeway Link is a significantly more sustainable option, whatever angle you consider it from. The climate impact per unit transported from Warsaw to Södertälje is more than 50 percent lower. Fewer trucks on the roads also reduces the risk of congestion and traffic accidents. This solution also offers drivers better working conditions, as they avoid having to be on the road for several days in a row and make more efficient use of the trucks.

Only trailers

Drivers and truck units stay on land

We only transport trailers and high and heavy cargo. Drivers leave their trailers at the quay and the trailers are driven on board from there. Neither the truck drivers nor truck units are transported on the vessel, allowing them to move on to other assignments. Once the vessel reaches its destination, we drive the trailers off the vessel and hand over them to the next haulier for onward transport.
