Estonian ferry operator Tallink has suffered a setback in its expansion strategy for the Baltic Sea region this week with the surprise termination of its newly launched passenger and cargo service between Germany and Estonia.
Instead, Tallink will start a service between Finland and Germany.
Earlier this year, Tallink acquired three Superfast brand ferries from Greece's Attica group, which were already employed in the Baltic Sea, marking the withdrawal of the Greek company from the region.
The Estonian company decided to operate the ships between Finland and Estonian on the one hand and Germany and Estonia on the other.
The latter service was stopped shortly after it had started. With the new link between Hanko/Finland and Rostock/Germany, Tallink returns to the previous Superfast schedule.
