“We are seeing a steady increase in freight volumes at all of our ports and it is extremely pleasing that Stena Line, a long-term and successful customer, has now chosen to introduce an entirely new service from the Port of Nynäshamn,” said Henrik Widerståhl, Deputy Managing Director and Head of Marketing at Ports of Stockholm AB  (SHAB).

The service is seen as a tangible example of creating alternative possibilities to use sea transport and to transport goods by sea directly to and from the growing Stockholm region. This is a better environmental alternative and alleviates the pressure on the country’s already congested roads and railways.

“It is beginning to get a bit crowded at Nynäshamn and this new service emphasises the need for the new freight port, the Stockholm Norvik Port, which we are currently building just north of Nynäshamn," added Stefan Hansson, Chair of the Board at SHAB.

The new port will be ready for the first vessels to call in 2020 and will be able to to handle larger volumes of both containers and ro-ro services.

"Demand for freight capacity is growing steadily, both from Poland and Sweden, and this is an important step for us in meeting the increasing demand of our customers, while at the same time building for the future," said Niclas Mårtensson, Stena Line CEO.

"We will continue to develop our operations to keep pace with the needs of the market and our customers, and this new service will be an important supplement to our existing routes over the Baltic Sea."

Stena Line currently operates services between Nynäshamn and Ventspils in Latvia with the vessels SCOTTISH VIKING and STENA FLAVIA.
