New container service
In mid-August, a new container line will be started with weekly traffic between Port of Norrköping and Poland. The new line will be a powerful link between Eastern Central Sweden and the important ports of Gdynia and Gdansk.
It is the Danish shipping company Unifeeder that from mid-August will offer a new service to and from Norrköping. Unifeeder is Europe’s largest player in feeder and short sea shipping. Since earlier, the shipping company has a weekly route between Norrköping and Hamburg. With the new line, which will operate on Gävle and Norrköping, a powerful link is created between east central Sweden and the ports of Gdansk and Gdynia.
Container handling in Port of Norrköping has in recent years had steady growth. Shipping increases in the Baltic Sea area, and Norrköping’s geographical location and large flows of both exports and imports have been the basis for an increased supply of the shipping lines and feeder services. At the same time, the port is growing, with an ongoing expansion of capacity and service.
