Gothenburg recovering in lo-lo container sector

Container throughput in the Swedish port increased by 19% in H1 2018 compared to last year’s strike-hit first semester, to 378,000 TEU

Magnus Kårestedt, Gothenburg Port Authority’s chief executive, said: "Although the container terminal has gone through a very testing period, the situation is looking brighter, with customers and volumes making a welcome return and with several new productivity records during the past six months. Whilst the trend is positive, the segment still has a long way to go before it is back where it ought to be."

 

Swedish industry is thriving, he added, and this is reflected in overall activity at the port.

 

During H1, some 152,000 cars new were shipped - the highest number in 10 years. As was the case previously, it is Volvo Cars’ highly successful model range that accounts for the majority of the motor vehicle throughput at the port

 

Gothenburg’s intra-European ro-ro traffic comprises mainly forest products and input goods for the engineering industry. With 593,000 ro-ro units handled, 2017 saw an all-time high for this segment. The signs are that 2018 could be yet another record-breaking year with 305,000 units reported for the first six months, a rise of 4%.
