Container transport in Sweden is increasingly concentrated to the Nordic region’s largest port. The Port of Gothenburg’s market share of container freight to or from ports in Sweden increased by three percent in 2021.
Gothenburg is the largest port for Sweden and the Nordic area by far when it comes to container freight. The Port of Gothenburg handled 828,000 containers in 2021 and grew more in relation to other ports in Sweden.
”This is proof of the market’s increasingly growing confidence in the Port of Gothenburg. Despite global disruptions, we have managed to stay open 24/7 without any major disturbances. Our almost perfect balance between import and export has also been a great advantage as global container shortages has been in effect,” said the CEO at the Gothenburg Port Authority.
