Eimskip has increased its shipping frequency for Portland, bringing the Icelandic shipping company closer to its goal of weekly service in order to better compete with other shipping companies.

The Portland Press Herald reported that Eimskip has increased its shipping frequency between Europe and Portland to once every 12 days, instead of once every two weeks. The increased frequency, which begins in February, means that Eimskip will add another container vessel to its two existing ones.

Once Eimskip reaches its goal of providing weekly container service, it will be able to better compete with other shippers in Boston, New York and Montreal, all of which currently offer that service. Larus Isfeld, Eimskip’s manager of operations in North America, told the newspaper that Portland will become a more feasible option for companies with interests in Northern Europe once weekly service becomes available.
