Ports

The ports in northern Sweden is an integral part of the Bothnian Corridor, all with uttermost importance for the export industries. There are ongoing developments in many of the ports. The TEN-T core port of Luleå will be developed for allowing larger ships. The draught will increase from 10.7 to 15 metres and the port will be able to receive ships up to 300 metres.

In the port of Umeå the railway connection has been improved and there will be development for improved container handling. In the port of Sundsvall, a new logistics park will be developed and the railway connection improved. In the port of Gävle a new container terminal has been built and the railway connection is being improved.

Of special importance is the ferry line between Umeå and Vaasa, which will connect the ScanMed CNC with the North Sea Baltic CNC. A new environmentally friendly LNG ferry is being ordered and is planned to be in regular traffic in 2021. The planning of this was co-funded by TEN-T (Action 2012‐EU‐21013‐M).
