The co-operation between Iceland’s Eimskip and Greenland shipping company Royal Arctic Line (RAL) will commence on Friday, June 12, when RAL’s new vessel, Tukuma Arctica, will sail from Denmark to Iceland.

Meanwhile, Eimskip’s new vessel, Dettifoss (pictured), was delivered in China at the end of April and is now on its delivery journey to Europe. Dettifoss will be a part of the co-operation in early July when it commences its route from Aarhus to Iceland.

It is estimated that Eimskip’s second newbuilding, Brúarfoss, will be in service at the end of next October. By then, it is expected that the co-operation with RAL will commence in full as originally intended with three vessels on a weekly schedule.

When the co-operation commences around mid-June, Eimskip will again operate the red line and Dettifoss and Tukuma Arctica will service Iceland and Greenland with port calls in Aalborg and Aarhus in Denmark and Helsingborg in Sweden.
