Sweden's newest port has been assigned its transport location codes. This is a milestone for the Stockholm Norvik Port and confirms that the construction of the port is on time and on budget.
The Stockholm Norvik Port has received its location codes, one for the container terminal and one for the RoRo terminal. The codes are assigned according to the United Nations Code for Trade and Transport Locations, better known as the UN/LOCODE.
All of the containers that currently go to the Frihamnen Port in Stockholm will have a new address from the beginning of May 2020 – the Stockholm Norvik Port. Containers bound for Stockholm must be marked with the new location code, regardless of where in the world they originate.
"Half of Sweden's consumption happens in the Stockholm region. Via the Stockholm Norvik Port, goods can be brought as close to the consumer as possible. This saves both time and money, and has a reduced climate impact. Having the location codes assigned means that we have achieved yet another milestone prior to the opening of the port next year," says Johan Wallén, Sales and Marketing Manager at Ports of Stockholm.
The Stockholm Norvik Port will be one of the most modern ports in the world. With state-of-the-art equipment and a depth of 16.5 metres, it will be able to accommodate the largest vessels operating in the Baltic Sea.
The Stockholm Norvik Port will open on schedule in May 2020, when it will be ready to receive ships, trains and haulage vehicles. The container port will be operated by Hutchison Ports, and the RoRo port will be run by Ports of Stockholm.
The Stockholm Norvik Port location codes are SESTO plus the code NCS for the container terminal, and SESTO plus the code NRS for the RoRo terminal.
