The Port of Larvik handles a huge variety of goods. Steel and wood products, granite, project cargo, offshore installations and the import of raw materials for the agricultural cooperative Felleskjøpet make up a large part of the daily activity of the port.

Stone exports

Larvikite is the national stone of Norway and is found only in the Larvik area. In the quarries around Larvik, large blocks of Larvikite are extracted and exported to factories all over the world. The Larvikite blocks are shipped out via the port in containers and as bulk cargo on ships and barges, and are a major export item from the Port of Larvik.


The Kanalkaia Terminal has quays of 335 metres (to the north) and 120 metres (to the west), and is equipped with a mobile port crane with 100 tons lifting capacity and a portal crane with 23 tons lifting capacity.

The by-product known as "storstein" is transported on barges to Europe for use in breakwaters and port construction, in addition to coastal erosion control.
