The shipping company Finnlines

With its ro-ro and ro-pax vessels, the Finnish shipping company Finnlines Oyj (head office: Helsinki) has a significant share of the transport volume in the passenger and cargo segments of the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and the Bay of Biscay. In the passenger segment, Finnlines and its subsidiaries focus on ferry services between Baltic Sea ports.

Finnlines' history began as an initiative to transport timber by sea from Finland to America. Founded in 1947, Finnlines created a second mainstay in 1962 by transporting passengers in addition to its cargo business. The first line connected the southern Finnish port of Hanko with the port of Travemünde in Lübeck. Over the decades, the share majorities in Finnlines have changed significantly several times. Since 2016, the Italian Grimaldi Group has been the sole shareholder in Finnlines.

One of the most important routes for sea travel between Germany and Scandinavia is the ferry line between Travemünde and Helsinki offered by Finnlines. All year round, three ro-pax ferries (cargo, car and passenger ferries) of the Star class take travelers from Germany to Finland. The ferries take about 29 hours to cover the 600 nautical mile distance. This crossing time necessitates one to two overnight stays on board.

In contrast, the Finnlines ferries from Travemünde to Malmö, the "gateway to Sweden," take just nine hours. The three ferries operating on this route serve the route up to three times a day. In addition to Travemünde, Rostock is another port that passengers can use for a Finnlines voyage to Helsinki. Finnlines also offers special trips to St. Petersburg, among other destinations.

The shipping company strives to combine comfort for ferry passengers with high safety standards on its vessels. Thus, all Finnlines ferries have the top standard of ice class 1 A. Finnlines is proud that emissions from its vessels have been reduced by 30% since 2008. Green hybrid technology plays an important role in the newbuildings to be put into service in the next few years.
