A new ro-ro terminal in Sweden has opened to boost capacity and provide growth opportunities for shipping companies.
Stena Line’s Stena Flavia was the first to call at the new ro-ro terminal at Ports of Stockholm’s Stockholm Norvik Port.
“With the strategic location of Stockholm Norvik Port, state-of-the-art infrastructure and great opportunities for storage and load handling, we have created completely new prerequisites for our customers,” said Johan Wallén, marketing and sales manager at Ports of Stockholm. “We warmly welcome Stena Line to Stockholm Norvik Port. We are very pleased with our many years of collaboration and also that Stena Line has chosen this commitment to the Baltic Sea’s new mega-port.”
The Hutchison Ports-operated container terminal at Stockholm Norvik Port opened in May. The ro-ro terminal is operated by Ports of Stockholm.
Strategically located in the Baltic Sea, the port features, exceptional storage and loading capacity, short approach lanes and efficient intermodal transport connections, including a newly built railway to ensure the sustainable supply of goods to the growing Stockholm region.
“Moving to Stockholm Norvik Port is an important part of our expansion in the Baltic Sea, and provides us with good prerequisites to continue to grow, together with our customers,” said Johan Edelman, trade director at Stena Line, responsible for routes to and from Latvia. “Already at the beginning of 2021 we will welcome the first of two new, modern vessels that will increase our freight-carrying capacity on the route by 30 percent.”
