Cemex opens new marine terminal in Norway

The southern Norwegian port of Kristiansand is now home to Cemex’s fifth marine terminal. 

“With this strategically-located terminal in Kristiansand we close the gap between the west and east coast of Norway, because we could not reach this geographic region by truck,” explained Andreas Rotermund, Cemex Deutschland’s commercial and logistics vice president. 

The first cement cargo to be unloaded at the terminal was shipped from Cemex OstZement’s Rüdersdorf works in Germany. 

Following the opening of the Kristiansand terminal, Cemex now owns five intermodal terminals in Norway – Oslo, Bergen, Etne and Stavanger.
