The construction of a new freight port north of Nynäshamn, the Stockholm Norvik Port, was launched today, according to the Ports of Stockholm’s Authority.

To facilitate the sustainable and efficient supply of goods to the region, Ports of Stockholm said it is building a new port for rolling goods and container traffic at Norvik.

Additionally, Norvik Logistics and Business Park would be constructed adjacent to the port as part of the project.

“Freight volumes are constantly increasing and the Stockholm Norvik Port is an important piece of the jigsaw in developing our ports to be able to handle the volumes and vessel sizes of the future,” Johan Castwall, Ports of Stockholm Managing Director, said.

Nine out ten goods arrive by sea in Sweden, with many of them destined for the Stockholm region. The new port will make it possible to transport goods as close to their final destination as possible by sea, Ports of Stockholm’s Authority earlier said, adding that port is important for the establishment of an efficient, eco-friendly supply of goods to the Stockholm region.

In April 2016, the Swedish Supreme Court issued a positive ruling by deciding not to allow permission for an appeal to be heard, marking the final hurdle prior to the launch of the construction of Nynäshamn’s Stockholm Norvik Port.

Ports of Stockholm is expected to welcome the first vessel into the new port in about three years.
