With steadily increasing volumes, the Swedish port opened new areas to improve the logistical conditions for the port’s customers.
On Monday, November 27, Ystad opened a new area of 33,000 m2 for vehicle pre-check-in. At the same time, another area of 23,000 m2 was opened, with two warehouses of 5,120 m2 each. The need for the expanded area is derived from an ever-increasing flow of passenger and cargo traffic through the port.
Ystad Harbor is a central point for trade between Sweden and countries in Central and Eastern Europe.
As from next year Ystad is going to build two new ferry berths in the outer harbour. In 2020 the first of several new ferries is expected to start operating the Ystad-Świnoujście line. Polferries has a ferry on order.
