Volumes up at Ports of Stockholm to end of August

The first eight months of 2018 have been "fantastic," says Ports of Stockholm (SHAB). Cargo throughput via Nynäshamn increased by 15%, with ro-ro volumes to and from Poland up by 60%

Ro-ro freight grew by a total of 5% for Ports of Stockholm during the first eight months of the year. The largest increases were at ports located outside the city port, entirely in line with the strategy to concentrate passenger services in the city and cargo to the ports peripheral to the city centre.


At the Port of Kapellskär, north of Stockholm, goods volumes grew by 7%, and at the Port of Nynäshamn, south of Stockholm, growth was 15%.


“The reasons behind the increase in freighted goods are the continued strong economic conditions and goods being transported by ship to an ever increasing extent, instead of by haulage vehicle on the roads,” said Johan Wallén, Director of Sales and Marketing at Ports of Stockholm Ltd (SHAB).


At Nynäshamn, Polish o/d traffic increased by no less than 60% in the first eight months of the year.


“We see a strong growth, which benefits the whole Stockholm region and the new freight port that we are building just south of Stockholm, Norvik Port, is much awaited," said Stefan Hansson, Chairman of the Board of SHAB.


"The container terminal at Stockholm Norvik Port is anticipated to be operational by May 2020, and the ro-ro terminal will open in September the same year.”
