After the purchase of a gantry crane and establishment of the container harbour, container traffic via the port of Larvik had a flying start at the end of the 1990’s. In subsequent years, considerable investments were made into these operations, including extension of quays, upgrading land areas and infrastructure, and the acquisition of a mobile harbour crane. Additionally, terminal operator Larvik Container Terminal AS has continually invested in land based handling equipment.

The container traffic has tripled since 2000, something which has resulted in Larvik, with a market share of 10 percent, being Norway´s second largest container harbour for the fifth year in a row.

The figures for 2012 show a volume of 61.700 TEUs. Flow of containers measured in TEU was 35 percent import and 65 percent export in 2012. A total of 677.000 tons of goods were transported in these containers. The large amount of granite on the export side gives a significant effect.

Four shipping companies Unifeeder, MSC, Tschudi Lines and Team Lines operate regular container lines via Larvik, Antwerp, Rotterdam and other important container ports in Europe.


 The container terminal at Revet is ISPS certified.
