By Curious

GENEVA's MSC is going to represent weekly services to Stockholm effective from October 1 at the container terminal Frihamnen.
Its coverage is now including ports: Antwerp, Bremerhaven, Sodertalje, Gavle and Norrkoping.
Other goes loop calls at Gothenburg and Helsingborg. It is hoped to the new rail shuttle service of Stockholm, run by TM Rail among the deep-sea harbor and Stockholm (Arsta) is going to support expansion given the port's 18 % capacity increase since 2010.
Port capacities, however, stays small at 27,843 TEU. Hutchison Ports Sweden, have to attract clients for its Stockholm's Frihamnen container terminal and in addition a 500,000 TEU terminal at nearby Norvikudden in Nynashamn that it holds as a concession and awaits environmental approval before construction might begin.
