Gothenburg car terminal goes to Logent

The Port of Gothenburg has signed a 10-year concession agreement with the Swedish logistics company Logent, which will operate the car terminal as Gothenburg Car Terminal AB

"This agreement will reinforce our position as a key partner for the Swedish automotive industry," said Magnus Kårestedt, CEO of the Port of Gothenburg.

The port is the largest port of export for cars in Sweden and construction machinery, truck chassis and bus chassis exports are also shipped through the port.

According to the port's statement, many companies expressed an interest in running the car terminal and around 10 external operators were involved in the process. The final choice was Logent - a Swedish logistics company that operates ports, combiterminals and storage facilities throughout Sweden and Norway. Logent also handles stevedoring at the Port of Stockholm as well as an industrial college in Gothenburg specialising in logistics.

"Gothenburg's geographical location is unbeatable when it comes to serving the whole of Scandinavia and the Baltic countries. We are seeking to reinforce the car terminal even further in close collaboration with the automotive industry," said Lars-Göran Ahlberger, President of Logent AB.

As previously reported, the background to the move is the division of the port into a municipal port authority and three separate terminal companies. The quays and infrastructure will remain under municipal ownership and the agreement only applies to operations at the car terminal. In October, the Port signed an agreement with DFDS Seaways and C Ports (Cobelfret) covering the operation of the ro-ro terminal and next in line in the transfer process is the container terminal.

The car terminal concession agreement is due to come into force on 4 April.
