The New Route Will Connect Stockholm To Rotterdam, Hull And Antwerp Via Sweden
In November, SUN Line Shipping introduced a brand new Rotterdam ˗ Stockholm ˗ Hull container service route. This means that Stockholm Norvik Port now has two connections, adding further strength to its status as an important logistics hub in the greater Stockholm area.
The new Rotterdam ˗ Stockholm ˗ Hull container service route was inaugurated on 11th November and SUN Line Shipping, a subsidiary of ThorSvecon Group AB (TSG AB), has increased its fleet. They have also introduced the Perseus container ship, which will sail from Stockholm Norvik Port one day each week. The vessel has a 660-foot-long cargo capacity and a crew of 40.
We’ve seen a continuous increase in demand from freight owners who want to transport goods between Sweden, the Netherlands, and England. Now the time is right to begin operating from Stockholm Norvik. Managing our route strengthens our position in east coast shipping and feels like a natural step for our goals.
The port in Norvik has been upgraded significantly and now offers brand new transport connections to two new destinations: Rotterdam and Hull.
Stockholm Norvik offers a unique location and close proximity to 50 percent of Sweden’s total consumption. It also operates as the hub it was meant to be, now offering logistics options for companies.
Stockholm Norvik Port, which is the container terminal operator for this port, is run by Hutchison Ports. It’s the biggest operation of its kind in the world and has nearly 60 global ports.
“The increased connectivity to and from Stockholm Norvik gives our customers more options for transporting their products,” said Lawrence Yam, CEO of HPSA about the new service.
The Baltic region is an attractive market with an economy forecast to grow by 4.8% between 2012 and 2020. With a location in Sweden and direct access to Europe, the RoRo and container port of Stockholm Norvik Port provides increased efficiency of transport links and short approach lanes.
