Ro-ro terminal opens at Sweden's newest port
The shipping company Stena Line was the first to call at a Stockholm Norvik Port RoRo-berth.
The port is a hub for the sustainable provision of goods due to its exceptional location in the Baltic Sea and its efficient connecting transport links.
On 9th November the Stena Line vessel Stena Flavia was the maiden RoRo-quay call at Stockholm Norvik Port. The arrival coincided with the opening of the gates to the new RoRo terminal, offering substantially greater capacity and growth opportunities for multiple shipping companies.
Johan Wallén, Marketing and Sales Manager at Ports of Stockholm, says:
“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. 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.”
Stockholm Norvik Port is located in what is Sweden’s biggest consumer area. The port has exceptional storage and loading capacity, as well as efficient intermodal transport connections to the whole of Sweden.
Johan Edelman, Trade Director at Stena Line, responsible for routes to and from Latvia, says:
“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. 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.”
Stockholm Norvik Port is a brand new RoRo and container port with the best location possible in the Baltic Sea. A hub with short approach lanes, efficient transport links and a newly built railway ensures the sustainable supply of goods to the growing Stockholm region.
