Immingham to Gothenburg is the most direct freight ferry route to travel from the UK to Sweden.
The most popular way to travel from the UK to Sweden by ferry in a van or lorry is from Dover or Folkestone. They offer the most flexible options with three ferry legs that are all open tickets and often the quickest routes. First you catch a ferry from Dover to Calais (or Dover-Dunkirk or Folkestone-Calais) which sail 10 times a day and take 90 minutes. Then you catch a ferry from Puttgarden in Germany to Rodby in Denmark, then a ferry from Helsingor in Denmark to Helsingborg in Sweden. These two routes are sold as one transit ticket. Both sailings run every 30 minutes, and take 30-40 minutes. Freightlink now also have an option for you to catch the ferry from Puttgarden to Rodby with an Øresund bridge & ferry ticket to drive into Sweden. The Puttgarden to Malmo transit ticket is completely fully flexible.
This route involves the least amount of driving mileage and is ideal for artics, with the opportunity for a rest break on board. As mentioned already this ferry can be the most expensive, but onboard facilities are excellent.
Other ferry route options to Sweden sail from Germany. These include routes such as Rostock or Sassnitz to Trelleborg, Travemunde to Malmo or Fredrikshavn to Gothenburg.
You can also get a transit ticket from Rostock to Helsingborg via Gedser. Any of these ferries are perfect to be combined with a Dover to Calais, Dover to Dunkerque or Folkestone to Calais crossing. These ferries to Sweden offer longer crossing times than the Puttgarden to Helsingborg route allowing you to get a relaxing break onboard the ferry.
