Instead of heading straight from Nice to Valletta as planned, the route has been changed and the ship is now also making a short stopover in Monaco. However, it is not just a regular stopover: It will include the spectacular delivery of a 2.4-meter-high elephant sculpture to H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco.
Greencarrier AB - A sustainable logistics solution provider
SOIC is a fully owned subsidiary of Greencarrier Group, a family-owned company with over 40 years of history specializing in logistics solutions. Greencarrier Group comprises several businesses in the Nordic and Baltic countries and offers global logistics solutions with all modes of transport, focusing on knowledge, innovation and sustainable solutions.
A perfect match based on heritage and future
Greencarrier is based on the Swedish heritage of commerce and shipping and on the fact that they want to do sustainable business between people, companies and countries.
SOIC basically share common values on which Greencarrier base their operations on a daily basis. Without humour and joy, dedication and participation, neither Greencarrier nor SOIC would have come a long way. Being a value-driven company does not happen by producing some words that will symbolize what we believe in and what we stand for. Being a value-driven company is when everyone, regardless of function, knows how to act every day to live the values, culture and brand. You know the difference between doing a job and getting involved in your job, for real. That is why we often say that, had we not had our staff at Greencarrier, then we would not have existed. And that’s why thousands of amazing volunteers do wonders as they give of their time to the Swedish Ship. It’s so strong. And it is for real!
When we start our journey towards a sustainable future with commerce, shipping and logistics as our base, Svenska Ostindiska Companiet is simply our starting point. We are proud of our origins and we want to build on that in the future.
Greencarrier may “only” be 20 years, but our history goes much further back in time. That is why we want SOIC and the ship to become our natural symbol and platform to do so.

We have some great news! We will make a short, but sweet visit to Monaco. This means that we will leave Nice on 4 October instead of 6 October. We will be in Monaco 4–6 October and will be open to visitors 5–6 October. Welcome on board!
Tuesday 20 September we sailed out of Málaga, after almost a full week in the harbor in the city center. The days here has been amazing with lots of interested journalists and visitors on board. Next stop is Nice, France!
