At the turn of the nineteenth century there were approximately 50 ports, industrial quays and wharfs along the coast of Hälsingland.

Skärnäs Terminal AB has its roots in Iggesund Bruk’s port division and Hudiksvalls Stuveri AB.  At the end of 1987, Skärnäs docking operations went from being partly-owned to a wholly-owned subsidiary of the then AB Iggesunds Bruk.

Today, Skärnäs Terminal AB is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Holmen AB. Nowadays, the port facility in Iggesund is the only port in northern Hälsingland operated on business lines. It has been extended with new quays, warehousing, and storage space in order to effectively handle volumes of freight way in excess of those 100 years ago.
