Northern Europe by Sea

11th March 2020

Goods are often transported from Scotland to Northern Europe by road. However, it can be more cost effective and reliable to ship from Scotland to Northern Europe by sea. The frequent delays and congestion at southern ports can add to the time it takes goods to travel by road.

 

It is now possible to ship goods from the Port of Grangemouth in Scotland to many destinations in Northern Europe, including Gothenburg, Rotterdam, Hamburg and St Petersburg. Here are some typical (port to port only) costs and destinations:
