Port of Trelleborg, the largest RoRo port in Scandinavia, has chosen Nowhere Networks as its strategic supplier for radio based fast internet to their shipping customers. Implementation will start shortly and before the end of this year all ferries of the Port of Trelleborg will have the opportunity to connect via radio link and receive up to 300 Mbit/s internet. Starting at the beginning of 2021, TT-Line will be the first shipping company to use high-speed internet via the joint collaboration between Nowhere Networks and the Port of Trelleborg.
For some time now, the Port of Trelleborg has been focusing to become the Baltic Sea’s climate-smartest port. Now the aim is also set to become the Baltic Sea’s most IT-friendly port. As the maritime industry has begun to transform into more IT-intensive and IT-dependent, the port now wants to offer its shipping customers a simple and cost-effective way to connect and obtain high internet capacity.
”Our collaboration with Nowhere Networks is truly a win-win-win relationship. All parties benefit from this and in particular our shipping customers who can utilize a wireless high-speed internet connection to be used both for business-critical IT systems and be available for the travellers on board who would like to use it for work or to communicate with their friends and family”, says Mikael Simonsson, IT Manager, Port of Trelleborg.
“We are very pleased and happy about this co-operation. Our full service concept, including everything is a complete solution for long range radio-based internet connectivity, and for the shipping customers of the Port of Trelleborg this will open up great opportunities”, says Asbjörn Frydenlund, CEO, Nowhere Networks.
