The Ports of Stockholm
The Ports of Stockholm comprise a number of port areas, of which Värtahamnen, Frihamnen and Loudden, as well as Stadsgården and Skeppsbron are the most prominent commercially. Other central quays are located at Strömmen and Nybroviken and these provide attractive quay-berths for the local passenger traffic.
Värtahamnen, Frihamnen and Stadsgården have extensive ferry services for both goods and passengers travelling to and from Finland and the Baltic countries. Stadsgården and Skeppsbron are the points of arrival and departure for the regular scheduled cruise traffic to and from Mariehamn.
In the summer Stadsgården, Skeppsbron and Frihamnen are the ports favoured by the international cruise liners. Loudden and Norra Värtahamnen house important facilities for supplying Stockholm with oil and fossil fuels.
Frihamnen has one of the most important container terminals on the east coast and grain is exported from here to all four corners of the world. Within the port areas of Stockholm there are also facilities for loading and unloading sand, cement and fuel pellets.
