International commercial traffic
Icebreakers and weekly scheduled connections enable more than 400 port visits each year despite the conditions caused by the ports’ location.
There are regular lines from Kemi to Lübeck (Germany) Antwerp and Zeebrugge (Belgium) as well Tilbury (UK). Also there is regular traffic to Philadelphia on east coast of USA. Regularly industrial products are shipped also to other ports at North Sea and Mediterranean as well to North Africa.
Due to its centralised location, container shipping companies also use the port as a support base for the storage of empty containers. Regular container feeder service runs weekly from Kemi to Hamburg and Bremerhaven as well to Antwerpen.
