CHNL has already built up an impressive international network of partners with leading expertise in Arctic marine transportation and logistics. This network has given CHNL a good foundation to fill the ambition to be a key mediator of knowledge of logistics in the Arctic.

In addition to institutions in Norway involved in some aspects of Arctic shipping CHNL has established cooperation with all the leading organizations in Russia with expertise in shipping, logistics and infrastructure development on the NSR. These organisations have also been the main source of information and data provided by CHNL’s Northern Sea Route Information Office (NSR IO).
