Project cargoes

Project cargoes


The common level of capacity, skills and willingness to work without limits at the Port of Halland, with ports in Halmstad and Varberg makes us a strong partner when it comes to project cargoes.

In the Port of Halland's project cargo segment, we work closely with our customers and other parties in projects to create the best customised solution possible. We can combine resources from the two ports when and where it is needed. We have very positive reactions for instance for our commitment to come up with logistics solutions in the transport of wind turbines and turnkey office and medical care modules from our port in Varberg.
