Port of Kristiansand is one of the most significant ports in Norway, and Norwegian authorities have defined it as an area of commitment. A part of the further development of the port is the development of new and modern facilities in the Kongsgård/Vige area, east of the present port. For users, this means increased capacity, improved security and more cost effective cargo handling from quay to customer.

Kristiansand is directly connected to the national road network to Oslo, Stavanger and Bergen. Kristiansand Airport, Kjevik is located a short distance from the city, and has frequent domestic and international departures. Geographically, the port is located close to markets like the Continent, United Kingdom, Scandinavia and the Baltics.
