The Port of Norrköping, on the Baltic Sea coast, about 130 km south of Stockholm, is one of Sweden’s most important gateways for maritime traffic. Approximately half of all Swedes live in east and central Sweden, within a 200 km radius of Norrköping, and this same hinterland contains a major part of the nation’s industrial and manufacturing sector.
The Port of Norrköping has evolved into one of the best equipped in the Baltic Sea region, providing a hub for logistics and intermodal cargo handling for exporting industries as well as importing actors. We are equipped to handle all kinds of cargo, from unitised traffic to breakbulk and from dry and liquid bulks to heavy lift items. We are one of Sweden’s principal gateways for a wide range of goods, including:
• Containers and road trailers
• Paper and pulp
• Sawn timber, logs and wood chips
• Petroleum products
• Steel products
• Cereals and grain
• Coal and salt
• Heavy lift items
There is also a 350 tonne capacity heavy lift crane, the largest of its kind in Sweden, used for handling project cargo.
Norrköping – a logistics hub
In response to changing market patterns in Sweden and across the Nordic countries, the Port of Norrköping has found new status as a distribution hub for the whole Nordic region. Already, for some years, Norrköping has been home to a cluster of companies specialising in third-party logistics. They have made good use of Norrköping’s first-rate transport links – including two motorways, a main railway and an international airport – to provide manufacturers and other cargo owners with an ideal base for distributing their products, not only in Sweden but across the Nordic region, including Denmark, Norway, Finland and the Baltic States.
The port has an ongoing mission to attract new business and new investors into Norrköping by creating an ideal environment for cargo handling, storage and distribution services, benefits not only port users and local businesses, but also the whole economy of the region.
The Port of Norrköping will soon leave the inner harbour in central Norrköping to make room for new homes and a new residential area. Instead we are growing in the Pampus Terminal. A modern and efficient port is valuable to ensure market supply, and with a continuously expansionary port, Norrköping and its surrounding region has a good support for strong future development.
At the Pampus Terminal we will build an additional 640 meters of new quay. Existing quay is 610 meters. The port basin will be expanded with a depth of 10.4-14.2 meter, which means same depth as most of existing port basin. Additional areas of approx. 120 000 square meters will be added. The new areas can be used for containers, wood products and other break bulk goods.
