BPO welcomes new members

BPO Board officially confirmed the membership of 2 new entities in the Baltic Ports Organization: Port of Gdańsk and Port of Södertälje. Recently, the organization has been developing more dynamically and this is another admission of members in recent months. Welcome on board!

The location of the Port of Gdańsk constitutes it great advantage. The outer part located directly on the waters of Gdańsk Bay includes deepwater terminals at which the largest ships that sail through the Danish Straits may be admitted and handled. They may be up to 400 metres long, with maximum draft up to 15 metres, at the depth of the basin of 17 metres. Out of more than 3,000 vessels sailing to the Port of Gdańsk, the highest number of calls is handled within one-time entries, the so-called charter entries. However, shipowners whose vessels regularly call at our quays have the possibility of receiving appropriate discounts, signing agreements with ZMPG S.A. regarding permanent shipping connections. Regular shipping lines include the Baltic Sea and the North Sea states. The connection network also covers: North, South and Central America as well as Asian countries. Regular transport is dominated by container loads, but shipowners carrying out automotive, ro-ro, conventional cargo and passenger transport also have their share in the transport market.

With its proximity to infrastructure, the capital and the Greater Stockholm region, Port of Södertälje holds a unique location in being placed in one of the most expansive regions in the Nordic's. Port of Södertälje is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Telge AB, which in turn is owned by Södertälje Municipality. For shipping companies, railway operators, shippers, cargo owners and operators, we are an efficient and flexible link between sea, land and railway transport in the greater Stockholm region. Loading and unloading of ships, transshipments to-and-from car/rail transporters, warehousing and terminal operations are all included in our daily port activities. Our emphasis is on RoRo (Roll on/Roll off) operations, container handling, liquid and dry bulk.

"Port of Södertälje holds a unique location with its proximity to infrastructure and the Greater Stockholm region, one of the most expansive regions in the Nordic's. We are the Gateway to the Greater Stockholm Region. Our port is over time getting more connected with several ports in the Baltic region, why we find a BPO membership of utmost importance." - Måns Frostell, Managing Director of Port of Södertälje.
