Norwegian is now offering airfreight services from Oakland International Airport to Oslo-Gardermoen and Stockholm-Arlanda.
Norwegian offers drop off at Oakland, where the bonded, cold storage international Container Freight Station is located at 1 Allan Sheppard Way. It accepts all types of general and perishable cargo with the exception of dangerous goods, live animals, human remains, and out sized pieces. Airfreight is flown on the environmentally-friendly B787 Dreamliner out of Oakland.
“The opening of Norwegian Cargo’s new facility at Oakland and faster cargo shipment to Norway and Sweden is a significant business development for the area,” said Deborah Ale Flint, director of aviation for the Port of Oakland. “We look forward to the export and import of goods to and from Scandinavia, especially perishables like Nordic salmon and crab that can be accommodated in the cold storage capable facility prior to making its way to kitchens and tables at fine restaurants throughout the region.”
