ferry company Stena Line moved its ferry terminal in Port Nynashamn Sweden to the newly built Stockholm Norvik Port. The new passenger terminal opened with the Stena Flavia ship making the first arrival.
The new terminal is considered to be an essential aspect of Stena’s expansion plans in the Baltic Sea that features the 2 new cruiseferries being deployed and 30% additional freight capacity on the Sweden-Latvia route Nynashamn-Ventspils by 2021.
Stena Line operates a total of 18 ferry routes in Europe, of which 3 across the Baltic Sea. Recently, Stena announced the expansion on the Nynashamn-Ventspils route with 2 large-capacity RoPax (roll-on/roll-off passenger) ships to be deployed by 2021, adding passenger and freight capacity.
The move to Stockholm Norvik is expected to improve the port's position.
According to Stena's Baltic Sea North trade director Johan Edelman, the move to the new ferry terminal was an important part of their expansion in the Baltic Sea and enabled them to continue to grow together with their customers. In January, they expected the first of the two new ferries to start operating, "adding another 30% freight capacity to the route.”
Stockholm Norvik is a new roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) and container terminal. The ferry terminal is due to provide logistics solutions with warehouse cross-docking facilities and increased capacity, along with intermodal connections with the rest of Sweden. Spread over 12 hectares, the terminal has a 525-m long quay length, annual freight capacity 200,000 units, 142 trailer parking spaces, 4000 KVM warehouse cross-docking facilities.
