Port of Hirtshals
+45 9656 5000
The Port of Hirtshals is one of Denmark’s largest ro-ro & ferry harbours with close and robust connections to Norway and the North Atlantic (incl. the unique ro-pax service to & from the Faroe Islands).
The geographical location at the commencements of the European motorway network, as well as close proximity to one of the world’s busiest seaborne trade lanes, make Hirtshals a natural centre for cargo transport in Scandinavia. Moreover, the port’s geographical position enables it to act as a junction spot for freight transports going to & from North Atlantic, Nordics, the Baltic States and Northern Europe. The port’s development as a cargo centre is primarily focused on ro-ro, container on flatbeds, general, bulk and project cargo in transit traffic.
The modern commercial harbour offers necessary facilities for securing swift handling of all types of freight between lorries, cars, trailers and ships; soon also the railway infrastructure will be upgraded to meet the market’s needs. The Port of Hirtshals’ location, combined with efficient infrastructure and good logistics solutions, positions the seaport as natural turntable for the transport, fishery, offshore and maritime industries.
