Today World Maritime Day is celebrated all over the world. For 2016 the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) has chosen the theme “Shipping: indispensable to the world“.
We could not agree more. Stena´s fleet alone travels 270 times around the world…every year!
Stena Line with its extensive route network in Northern Europe carries around 30 000 kilometers of trucks every year, equal to more than 3 times the distance between London and Shanghai, supplying grocery stores and supermarkets with fresh food and flowers, manufacturing companies with processing materials and construction sites with building materials.
Further afield, for example in Sweden, Christmas celebrations are partly dependent on shipping as 1.2 million Christmas trees every year are shipped to Sweden on Stena Lines vessels from Denmark
Did you know that, according to United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), 80% of global trade (by volume) is carried at sea? That means that without shipping global trade would probably not be possible.
Stena was founded 1939 and has grown to be a truly global company. Please join our journey and get a feeling for who WE ARE.
