A round table meeting held in Brussels on Wednesday 28 focused on the possibility of expanding the Baltic-Adriatic transport corridor to also include Port of Ystad, connecting Scandinavia to the continent. The Baltic-Adriatic transport corridor is one of the most important trans-European road and railway axes and currently stretches from northern Italy via Bratislava and Vienna to Poland and the Szczecin-Świnoujście port.

Port of Ystad once again celebrated another year of record numbers in 2017, with significant increases in traffic on both routes; Ystad – Świnoujście and Ystad – Rønne.

In the finishing panel discussion, the European Commission representatives stated that Port of Ystad is a likely candidate for becoming a Core harbor, thus becoming part of the transport corridor.
