16. 03. 15

The Vice Chairman of Swedish Governments Committee on Transport & Communication, Jessica Rosencrantz visited Port of Karlshamn. Apart from information about the positive development in the port and growing cargo volumes east-west, representatives for Volvo Cars, IKEA AB and Green Cargo addressed the importance of building the 11 km short missing railway link "Sydostlänken" (South East Link) from Karlshamn to Olofström (Volvo Cars). Further connecting Älmhult (IKEA) and the main North-South railway line. A comparatively small infrastructural investment, profitable from a national economical view, considering the great benefit for transportation of freight and passengers.
