Stockholm is one of Europe’s most rapidly growing capital cities and freight volumes are constantly increasing. To facilitate the sustainable and efficient supply of goods to the region Ports of Stockholm is building a new port for rolling goods and container traffic at Norvik, close to Nynäshamn. NCC will construct the Norvik Logistics and Business Park adjacent to the port, where companies will be able to establish their operations in a dynamic environment, in close proximity to the port, road network, railways and capital city.

Today nine out of ten consumer goods arrive in Sweden by sea from other countries. Transferring more cargo away from Sweden’s already congested roads and railways to be transported instead by ship all the way to the heart of Sweden’s largest consumer area means that the supply of goods to the region will be more sustainable.
