APM Terminal to Operate Short Sea Terminal in Gothenburg
Once the dedicated terminal is operational, APM Terminals Gothenburg will add a sustainable short-sea solution to its offering and become Sweden’s only full-service terminal. The terminal will provide a flexible and environmentally friendly intra-European cargo transport option. The terminal will be located at the Skandiahamnen western quay, which was recently renovated and reinforced. Plans are currently being made to ensure the most efficient short-sea handling system possible. In addition to suitable storage and transloading facilities close to the quayside, the plan also includes capabilities for loading and unloading barges and smaller coastal vessels.
Since 2019, APM Terminals has been heavily investing in the Green Gothenburg Gateway, a project to enable efficient freight transportation with the least possible environmental impact. One important aspect of this work is to create the right conditions to move goods transport away from the already busy roads to ships.
