2020 was a challenging year for everybody in the world of transport, logistics and ferries. Economic trading indicators were not favorable, and we dealt with the consequences of the decisions concerning Brexit.
Stena Line on the North Sea made detailed preparations to cope with the challenges of both the economy and Brexit. We have published guidelines on our website for our customers to help them be prepared with the correct documentation to avoid congestion at our ports. We will continue to update customers through our website and newsletters. Our account managers are also available to assist with further information.
In autumn 2019 our second train track on the quayside in Europort was completed. This initiative will enable us to expand our rail-ferry concept. Our North Sea routes offer both driver accompanied and unaccompanied services into the most important industrial areas within the United Kingdom. Market fluctuations influence our customer demands and we believe there is a requirement for both accompanied and unaccompanied traffic especially just-in-time cargo and temperature-controlled business.
