Logistics company Euroglobe has agreed to set up terminal operations, including bonded warehouse facilities at Stockholm Norvik Port.
Euroglobe has leased approx 6500 m² of land from Ports of Stockholm which will be used to load, unload and store goods. A terminal building will be constructed to connect with the container terminal operated by Hutchison Ports Sweden.
Johan Wallén, director of sales and marketing, Ports of Stockholm, commented: “The establishment of Euroglobe here will provide completely new possibilities to transfer goods between the different types of transport operating services to and from Stockholm Norvik Port, and we are very pleased to be able to develop our collaboration with Euroglobe,”
Javier Sangüesa, sales manager, Euroglobe, added: “It feels good to be in at the start of Stockholm Norvik Port and to be able to offer the same good service that we have been able to provide at Frihamnen Port. We are proud to be involved and to be able to develop logistics in the greater Stockholm region, together with Ports of Stockholm and Hutchison Ports,”
The establishment of the new terminal will provide completely new possibilities to handle export goods, as the volumes can be stored and loaded into containers for onward transport out into the world. Previously it has not been possible to handle large volumes at Frihamnen Port in Stockholm, as the area has been too congested for the growing container operations. The Swedish export industry has a demand for an excess of empty containers to be able to be handled in Stockholm.
