Sweden’s Ports of Stockholm saw an increase in both container cargo volumes as well as RoRo volumes in the first seven months of 2016, compared to the same period last year. 

The largest increase in RoRo freight was seen at the Port of Nynäshamn, where figures were up 20 percent. In the period between January and July, the port handled 860,000 tons of freight.

Over the same period, RoRo freight at the Port of Kapellskär increased by six percent to 1.159,000 tons.

In addition, the number of containers at Frihamnen went up by ten percent. A total of almost 32,000 containers were handled at the Container Terminal Frihamnen.

“We are very glad to see this trend of a continued increase in freight volumes at our ports. Our strategy has been to increase freight volumes through our outlying ports and development to date this year shows that we have chosen the right course,” Henrik Widerståhl, Deputy Managing Director and Head of Marketing at Ports of Stockholm, said.

Ports of Stockholm operates ports in Stockholm, Kapellskär and Nynäshamn and is constructing the Stockholm Norvik Port, a new container and RoRo port outside Nynäshamn.
