The new Stockholm Norvik Port has expanded Ports of Stockholm’s business operations but also increased demand for storage space. A new high-capacity transhipment warehouse is now ready to handle the transfer of cargo from one form of transport to another.
With over 3,800sm and a ceiling height of 11m, import- and export cargo can be unloaded or stored before onward shipment in this ample-capacity warehouse.
Nicklas Ebersson, Marketing Manager Cargo, at Ports of Stockholm, said: “The RoRo terminal just opened at Stockholm Norvik Port and it feels really good to have such a substantial warehouse at our disposal when the volume of goods being shipped to Ports of Stockholm is increasing and customers want to expand their businesses.
“During the spring of 2021 Stena Line will switch to two larger and more modern RoPax-vessels.”
Services to and from Latvia have relocated from Port of Nynäshamn to Stockholm Norvik Port. Cargo has previously predominantly been imported building materials such as timber sheets and plasterboard, as well as steel structures, which have been handled in a smaller warehouse.
The terminal at Stockholm Norvik Port now has the prerequisites to handle more cargo exports. In the newly built warehouse, for example, pulp being transported from central Sweden will be able to be transferred to other forms of transport.
In addition to the storage warehouse, Ports of Stockholm has built five major buildings at Stockholm Norvik Port. All of these buildings are now ready for Ports of Stockholm and partners, authorities such as Swedish Customs and the Swedish National Food Agency, and the shipping companies at the port.
