At Ports of Stockholm’s northernmost port, Port of Kapellskar, transhipment cargo handling has reached a higher gear. The increased demand for goods handling emphasises the port’s position as one of Sweden's most important freight ports.

The goods tonnage handled at the Port of Kapellskar has increased sharply compared to 2020. During the first quarter of 2021 more than 3000 metric tons of cargo were handled at the port. The goods arrive by sea, transported by the shipping company DFDS from Paldiski in Estonia, and are transferred to road haulage vehicles on arrival in port.

“It is really pleasing that so much transhipment cargo is being transported in this way, as we have recently expanded services on this route,” says Kerli Pettersson, Operations Manager, DFDS.

The transhipment cargo mainly consists of three types of goods: OSB sheet materials for the Norwegian and Swedish construction industries, granulated UREA in large sacks for use in AdBlue (which reduces hazardous emissions from diesel engines), and housing modules.

“It is excellent that the benefits of transporting more goods by sea are being increasingly recognised and that more customers are discovering our services at the Port of Kapellskar. Our strength is our competent employees, who are experienced in dealing with rapid change,” says Andreas Pedersen, Stevedoring Manager at Port of Kapellskar.

Kapellskar is Ports of Stockholm’s northernmost port and is one of Sweden’s most important and modern freight ports. The port handles around 3 million metric tons of goods annually. This equates to 40 percent of Ports of Stockholm’s ferry freight to and from Finland, Estonia and the Åland Islands.
