As I remember the flags and arms of counties are not permitted, by law, to be used in the logos of private enterprises.

Ferry companies in Norway do have their flags. I remember I had a lot of fun joking on the flag of ferry company in Trondelag which is exactly the same as Austrian one (red white red).

Ferry company of Sogn og Fjordane

The ferry company of Sogn og Fjordane has a swallow tailed field with a white rectangle with a blue saltire in the middle.

The flag of Fylkesbåtane developed from a Norwegian flag signalling system introduced in the early 1800's. This required ships to fly a white flag with a letter corresponding to the town where the ship was registered. The letter for Bergen was X, which is still seen on the Fylkesbåtane flag. The white field soon had borders added, mostly in red and blue, in all sorts of variations. The red borders on the flag of Bergen are an inheritance of this signalling system.

A houseflag with the horizontal bands of blue, white, and red muse belongs to another company. Perhaps, MRF (Møre og Romsdal Fylkesbatar). Many Norwegian houseflags have the red-white-blue combination.
