Norwegian container operator Yilport Oslo set an all time high record in a single month with 21 363 TEUS in October 2018, registering an increase of 28 % compared to October last year.

Maiken Solemdal, Commercial Manager at Yilport Oslo explained the growth as a result of the terminal's Short Sea focus:“In the first 10 months we have a growth of 10,4 % compared to 2017. Increased volume is mainly Intra European cargo that previous was transported from Europe to Norway by trucks.

"By changing the dynamics in the supply chain with flexible solutions, such as extended opening hours both at vessel operation and in the gate that can compete with trucks we are not only growing as a terminal, but also participating to the green shift by reducing CO2 emissions considerably on the cargo imported to Norway,” Maiken added.

The Port of Oslo is Norway's leading cargo and ferry port. The port makes 50 to 70 calls of cargo and passengerships each week. It is an intermodal port that is able to handle all types of cargo.
