Ports of Stockholm steady in 2018

Freight transport on ro-pax ferries increased by 4% to 7.2 Mt and container volumes totalled 57,400 TEU.


The figures summary for 2018 shows a new revenue record of SEK866M, SEK10M more than the record set in 2017. Cruise passenger numbers reached record figures and the number of ferry passengers increased to more than 11M.


“2018 was our best year, both financially and in terms of volumes," said Thomas Andersson, Ports of Stockholm (SHAB) Managing Director. "Over a six-year period that is nearing its conclusion, Ports of Stockholm has made major investments in three ports to meet growth, sustainable urban development, and future shipping needs."


Jonas Nilsson, Chair of the Board at SHAB, said: “The Stockholm region is growing at a record rate and it is satisfying for us to be able to contribute to an ever-increasing proportion of transport now arriving by sea. Next year we will open the Stockholm Norvik Port, which is connected to the national railway network. That will be a strong contribution to Stockholm’s prominent position within sustainable urban development.”
