SCA’s Container Express connects Rotterdam to Oxelösund

While SCA’s Ro-Ro vessels already make port calls to Oxelösund, container traffic will be a new addition

SCA’s Container Express connects Rotterdam to Oxelösund

SCA is adding a new destination to its container traffic between Europe’s leading container port of Rotterdam and Sweden. Since December 4, SCA’s container vessels, MV SCA Tunadal and MV SCA Munksund, make a weekly port call at Oxelösund. This creates a new, regular and efficient transport solution for goods from the European continent to the Stockholm Region.

“Our container traffic has risen steadily in recent years,” says Nils-Johan Haraldsson, Direcctor Marketing and Business Development for Logistics at SCA. “The transport of industrial goods to the continent has increased and we have been able to build larger and more effective container transport solutions. At the same time, demand for sustainable and reliable transport solutions has grown, especially for consumables to the major market of Greater Stockholm.”

SCA’s Container Express will call at Oxelösund at the beginning of the week, to meet retailers’ needs to stock up before the busy trading days at the end of the week.

“Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe and a hub for goods flowing all over the world,” says Nils-Johan Haraldsson. “We ship industrial goods from northern Sweden to Rotterdam and can efficiently bring consumables back in both shortsea and deepsea containers on the same vessel. We have very positive experience of similar traffic in Helsingborg.”
