In Sweden, a new transhipment terminal, located between the Port of Gothenburg container and Ro-Ro terminals, is gradually emerging.

The terminal is designed to handle forest products which will arrive by rail from Swedish mills and then transfer the products to containers for onward transport to various parts of the world. Volumes equivalent to 60,000-100,000 teu units will be handled at the terminal each year. The terminal, named the Svea Terminal, will offer 45,000 sqm of storage space.

"This is the result of the long-term investment in the Railport concept, which connects the whole of Sweden to the Port of Gothenburg by rail,” said Claes Sundmark, vice president of the Gothenburg Port Authority.

Investments include the current expansion of the double-track port line and construction of the Arken Combi terminal, which has already led to a substantial reduction in road traffic in Gothenburg. (mw)
