The municipality of Oslo is growing. Residential and commercial construction, road building and maintenance, as well as grain and proteins to supply human and animal diets, all require dry bulk products. Transshipment through Port of Oslo with its close proximity to end users helps reduce the impact of road transport and emissions on the environment.
Norwegian industry uses the port to access markets for products such as leca, pellets and timber. Most dry bulk products are handled on Sjursøya. Food grains are transshipped through the grain silo at Vippetangen.
