About us

Our company

We are Stena Line, one of the world’s largest ferry operators with over 33,300 yearly sailings. Everything we do is based on our core values of care; care for customers, care for resources and care for each other.


Stena Line has its roots in Sweden and we are truly an international company. We employ over 6,100 employees from 40 countries across Europe. With our headquarters located in Gothenburg, Sweden, we have a route-based organisation in 7 business regions.


We offer affordable and seamless ferry transportation for all of our customers with an absolute commitment to safety and reliability and a reduced environmental footprint.


We are a ferry company with the vision to connect Europe for a Sustainable Future together.


Our Swedish heritage

Sten A. Olsson was brought up on an island on the west coast of Sweden. At a young age, he learned that hard work, collaboration and care for each other pays off. In 1939, aged 23, he set up a business trading scrap metal in Gothenburg. A few years later he bought his first ship and the rest is history. Today, his son Dan is the CEO of the Stena Group. Stena Line remains a family-owned business with Swedish roots and we’re proud of our heritage.


Our vision

Our vision “Connecting Europe for a Sustainable Future” is the prime goal for our journey. We already have the most comprehensive route network in Europe. But at the end of the day, it’s not about what we do but why and how we do it. The way we see it, it’s all connected. By bringing people together, we enable businesses and societies to grow. This, in turn, makes it possible for us to develop as an even safer and more reliable company that reduces its environmental footprint, step by step.


A route-based organisation

We have a route-based organisation within 7 geographical business regions: Denmark, Germany, Baltic Sea North, Baltic Sea South, Irish Sea North, Irish Sea South and North Sea. The business regions make it possible for the company to take advantage of synergies and focus on profitability. Each route organisation is responsible for its own profitability.


Our extended family Stena AB
