From the first of this month, all drivers – including those driving freight vehicles – will pay a congestion charge on weekdays between eight and 18 kronor (between $1 and $3 ) depending on the time of day, with an upper limit of 60 kronor a day. The charge operates between 6:00 am and 6:29 pm. The holiday month of July will be free, as are evenings and weekends. Cars with foreign license plates and emergency vehicles will be exempt.
AS Gothenburg is the biggest port in Sweden, the charge will increase costs to hauliers and logistics providers.
