50% price cut in port fees
To keep the flow of shipped goods between Sweden and its neighbouring countries running, Ports of Stockholm has halved port fees for ferries at all three of the company’s ports.
In this very serious situation, where countries are closing their borders and it is difficult for the ferry companies to maintain sailing services, Ports of Stockholm sees this measure as a means to maintain as many sailings as possible at the three ports, both over the shorter and longer term.
“We need to support our customers in maintaining what is a societally important function for the transport of goods as a bridge between us and our neighbours,” says Thomas Andersson, Ports of Stockholm managing director. The reduction in port fees applies to ferries. The new tariffs will apply for one month, starting from 17 March. (mw)
