Samskip network of sea routes and rail links crisscrossing Europe, is a well-oiled machine that gets better and better. With intermodal transport from Turkey to Norway you can save much money and limit environmental emissions without major loss of time.
Samskip's product Green Bridge is a new collaboration between Samskip and one of Turkey's largest logistics operators, ICL / Netlog. For cargo owners who need transportation between Norway, Scandinavia and Turkey, it provides good opportunities. In early 2014 a multimodal solution was introduced, including a link between Istanbul and Druiseburg in Germany, where Samskip has its large rail hub. Goods are transported in 45 foot High Cube Pallet Wide containers.

Samskip connects nine Norwegian ports to Duisburg via Rotterdam. Transit time from Turkey is 12-14 days to various harbors in the Oslofjord and 14-18 days for various ports on the Norwegian West Coast. By car the trip to Norway takes 7-8 days. Time loss is thus minimal.
Please check indicative prices from Turkey to Norway for 45 foot container compared to semi-trailer for a door-door transport:
- Oslo - € 3,335 (€ 4000-4500 with semi-trailer)
- Stavanger - € 3,790 (€ 5500-6500)
- Ålesund - € 3,830 (€ 5500-6500)
There is, in other words, a lot of money to be saved. In addition, a 45 foot container take up to 25 tonnes, whereas a truck only takes 21 tons.
Dan Cargo, one of Samskip customers, explains:
