Stockholm Norvik Port, Sweden’s newest major port, is fully operational after its roll on-roll off (RoRo) terminal opened in November, following the opening of container terminal in May 2020, according to Ports of Stockholm.
The Port provides Ports of Stockholm with increased capacity for larger vessels and greater volume. More goods can be transported directly to the Stockholm region, where half of Sweden’s consumption takes place.
Johan Wallen, Chief Commercial Officer, Ports of Stockholm, said, “Now that all of Stockholm Norvik Port is finally completed, we can offer substantially greater capacity and opportunities for our customers to grow.
“We can also offer our customers improved service in the form of greater possibilities to store and transfer cargo, as well as eco-efficient alternatives to transport goods to and from Stockholm.”
Thomas Andersson, CEO at Ports of Stockholm, also commented, “It really is fantastic that despite these difficult times we have been able to open a port on time and on budget. Stockholm Norvik Port offers state-of-the-art, sustainable logistics solutions both now and for the future.”
Construction of Stockholm Norvik Port started in 2016 and, despite its size and complexity, the port was completed on schedule and on budget. More than 200 contractors were involved in the project.
The port has been built to be a safe, efficient and favorable environmental choice, as well as to meet the demands of the future.
