At the Port of Gothenburg, collaboration is now being intensified with the port’s rail connected inland terminals. By offering local intermediate storage of import containers at inland terminals all over Sweden, the intention is to make additional optimisation possible in customers’ logistical solutions. The majority of import containers at the Port of Gothenburg are transshipped to inland terminals around Sweden via the container terminal’s integrated railway harp.The Port of Gothenburg RAILPORT container storage initiative was presented to customers earlier in September by The Gothenburg Port Authority and APM Terminals Gothenburg – together with many of the port’s inland terminals. The purpose is increasingly to move the intermediate storage of import containers from the port to inland terminals closer to the final destination of the goods all over Sweden.If an import container from China has Eskilstuna as its final destination, for example, it’s an advantage if intermediate storage also takes place at the inland terminal in Eskilstuna. The owner of the products then has better accessibility to the goods when the time comes to collect them.The conditions for this are in place, thanks to the port’s network of inland terminals all over the country that are connected to the rail network.
