Port of Helsingborg

The Container Specialist

The Port of Helsingborg is located in a booming part of the Nordic region and functions as a rail hub and as one for road freight on the E4 and E6. This is one of the factors that have made us one of Sweden’s most used ports. Over the last few years we have focused on container handling, and are now an important cog in the machinery of Sweden’s trade and industry, both nationally and regionally. We now handle around 280,000 TEU from shipping and around 170,000 TEU from land transports. However, these volumes can and will increase. For example, we see that with the right partners and customers we can make more extensive use of our combi terminal. Rail transport and environmental work are at the top of our agenda.

We have a unique location in the Öresund region. The straits are among the most trafficked in the world and we manage shipping from around the globe. A number of our customers are shipping companies with regular traffic to and from some of Europe’s biggest and most important port cities.

Our place on the map is also central as regards land transport. Even from inside the port, our combi terminal provides us with access to a rail network that reaches goods destinations and transport hubs throughout Sweden and Europe.  Equally convenient and efficient transport routes are available for road freight via the E4 and E6.
