Umeå port meets tomorrow’s logistics needs and contributes to the global goals

The Port of Umeå is an important facility for the whole of Norrland, Norrbotten and Ostrobothnia as much of the region’s incoming and outgoing goods pass through here. It is also connected to the other facilities of the region and Umeå municipality via railways and roads and in proximity to the airport, which is only 20 minutes away by car. The proximity to Vaasa and Umeå’s strategic geographical location together with the growth that is taking place in the region mean that the port needs to be equipped and developed for the logistics solutions of the future.
