TX Logistik, Mercitalia’s subsidiary that offers rail freight services in Europe, will launch a new rail connection between Stockholm Norvik Port and the Eskilstuna Intermodal Terminal. The company will launch the service in January with five roundtrips per week.

Ports of Stockholm, the company that manages the ports of Stockholm, Nynäshamn, Kapellskär, and Stockholm Norvik, added that there will be a new service to Norway. CargoNet, a rail freight company active in Norway, will start a new service in April connecting the Eskilstuna Intermodal Terminal to Oslo. This will open up a door in the Nordic market for the Stockholm Norvik Port and customers that want to use the rail to ship to Stockholm.

Stockholm Norvik Port

The Stockholm Norvik Port, 50 kilometres south of the city, opened for business in December 2020 with a container terminal and a RoRo terminal. Stockholm Norvik Port provides Ports of Stockholm with increased capacity for more and larger vessels. Considering that Stockholm is where much of Swedish consumption occurs, this new port helps to decongest roads and railways that from other ports lead to the capital.

The Eskilstuna Intermodal Terminal

The Eskilstuna Intermodal Terminal is located 100 kilometres west of Stockholm and already offers connections to the Swedish ports of Gothenburg, Malmo, and Trelleborg. From the terminal, it is possible to reach the southern, western and northern main lines, meaning that there is always an alternative route in case of traffic stoppage. In addition, the terminal is equipped to handle 750-metre-long trains and it is fully electrified.

Ports, gates of Nation, around coasts of Sweden, Ocean, etc., all, have to be benefitted of!
Advantage of hemisphere, nearness to ports, however now is obstructed – by elderly, no longer optimal, railway standards.
Currently, for majority the “other” alternative is the single, up to 1000 km from port.
Even worse, majority is imposed extras, “steerings”, bluntly excused – by short comings of railways…
(Nearness, within a big domestic market, Goal of EU, devastatingly is obstructed.)
