First Containership Arrives at Sweden's Newest Port

Unifeeder containership SCA Tunadal on Wednesday claimed the maiden call at Sweden's newest freight port, Stockholm Norvik Port, following the completion of a long port construction project.

The container terminal is now open, both for vessel calls and for shore-based business operations at the port. The 32 hectare container terminal is run by Hutchison Ports, one of the world's largest container terminal operators, with 52 ports in 27 countries.

Nine goods in 10 arrive in Sweden by sea, and the Stockholm region accounts for half of Sweden's entire consumption. The opening of the new freight port increases opportunities to transport goods by sea as close to their final destination as possible. The port provides modern and efficient transport solutions through its proximity to the major shipping fairways, a natural depth of 16.5 meters, and good land infrastructure connections, including a newly built railway line.

Work is ongoing to complete the other part of Stockholm Norvik Port, the RoRo terminal, which is planned to open during the autumn.
