The Ohman Terminal is a fully-integrated combi-terminal with capacity for simultaneous storage of from two- to three-thousand TEUs of containerized cargo and an overall capacity for 100 thousand TEUs. The terminal has three separate rail sidings.
The Pampus Terminal, located on the seaward side of the Port of Norrkoping, is a deep-
