PORTLAND, ME, March 11, 2013 (Kennebec Journal) -A strategic partnership between Iceland's largest steamship line and New England's largest railroad is poised to transform the quiet port of Portland into a hub for freight crossing the North Atlantic.

Starting later this month, container ships from Icelandic Steamship Co., also called Eimskip, will be connecting Portland directly with cities as far north as Murmansk, Russia, 125 miles above the Arctic Circle, and as far south as Rotterdam, Netherlands, Europe's largest port.
