Early on Saturday morning the container freighter Jonni Ritscher left the port of Sillamäe headed for Rotterdam, opening Maersk’s regular container freight service between two ports.

Danish Maersk Line took up operations in Sillamäe in Ida-Viru County a year ago and initially announced that regular services would follow in spring 2016. This was delayed several times, but now the route was finally opened, ETV’s “Aktuaalne Kaamera” reported on Sunday.

The new route brought Sillamäe a few dozen new jobs as well, and the port itself will see increased freight volumes also.

CEO of local stevedore company AS Silsteve, Jaanus Paas, said that the route would remain open if there was sufficient commercial interest. The world’s biggest container shipping company wouldn’t be in Sillamäe for any other reason than that, Paas said.

The route would ship Estonian export and import goods, but also transit goods passing through the country, port operator Silport said.
