Freight volumes at Port of Kapellskär are continuing to rise.

  • In 2020, a total 2.9 million tonnes of freight was transported via Kapellskär, an increase of 250,000 tonnes.
  • This shows the supply of goods shipped by sea, which is so important to the Stockholm area, functioned very well in the difficult prevailing circumstances.
  • Finnlink, Ports of Stockholm’s largest freight customer, represented the largest proportional rise in freight volumes
  • Freight volumes in 2020 also increased for DFDS and Tallink Silja. Both shipping companies introduced additional vessels on the Kapellskär – Paldiski (Estonia) route to meet the demand for transport when services from Stockholm stopped as a result of the pandemic.
