For drivers, manufacturers, couriers and hauliers looking to transport goods from the UK to Norway by freight ferry, there are 2 options.
The most popular way to travel to Norway by freight ferry in a van or lorry offers regular sailings and a level of flexibility.
While travelling directly from the UK to Norway has its advantages, transporting your goods to France first can be a great option for many businesses, and is exceedingly cost-effective.
Eurotunnel offers the fastest & most convenient crossing for freight transport between the UK and Continental Europe.
And as an Authorised Eurotunnel Freight Distributor, we are perfectly positioned to help you get the best rates on your Eurotunnel tickets.
After transporting your goods from the UK and into France, you can drive your goods to Denmark. From here, there are several routes you can choose which will take your goods directly into Norway, including:
While the DFDS route can take your goods directly into Norway’s capital city, the Fjord Line Hirtshals to Bergen, a large South-Western city.
Meanwhile, Kristiansand is located between Oslo’s two biggest cities, at around 320km from Oslo and 460km from Bergen. The Color Line Hirtshals to Kristiansand route runs once per day.
Alternatively, you may decide to transport your goods into Norway via Germany.
After transporting your goods into Germany from France by road freight, the Color Line Kiehl to Oslo route can take your goods directly into Norway’s capital city.
During the 20 hour crossing, drivers can enjoy complimentary meals and berth in a shared cabin.
Rather than transporting your goods by two freight ferries (one from the UK into France, and another from Denmark or Germany into Norway), direct ferries can help your business by reducing wear and tear on vehicles and taking your goods straight into Norway from the UK.
Brevik is around 160km from Oslo (or roughly an hour away) so this route involves the least amount of driving mileage and is ideal for artics, with the opportunity for a rest break on-board, or for unaccompanied trailers.
This ferry can be the most expensive, but on-board facilities are excellent, with drivers enjoying an en-suite and complimentary meals on board.
This is currently an unaccompanied freight service only.
