Figures from the Swedish Ports Association show that the largest ports in Sweden attract significant growth, while smaller ports experience declining volumes.
Quarter III of 2020 was challenging for Swedish shipping and many Swedish ports lost volume. Cargo flows increasingly shifted from the east to the west coast and from the smaller ports to larger ports.
The largest port in Gothenburg has grown ten-times more than the next largest growth port.
Container handling using fossil-free energy solutions is linked to environmentally friendly rail freight transport, in order to reduce the carbon footprint from Sweden’s imports and exports.
