Logent Ports & Terminals
Logent Ports & Terminals in Gothenburg is by far the largest export port for vehicles in Sweden. There is also a significant import volume. Apart from loading and unloading, parking and storage are offered as well as PDI services. PDI involves adapting car models to the specifications stipulated in different countries.
Gothenburg has an unbeatable location to serve the whole of Scandinavia and the Baltic Region. The port is ice-free all year round and there is no tide. There are direct routes to other parts of the world, including North America, Africa, the Middle East and Australia.

Adaptation of imported cars
Cars imported into Sweden must sometimes be adapted to Swedish conditions, such as automatic dipped headlights. Logent Ports and Terminals therefore provide PDI – Pre-Delivery Inspection. The service involves adapting the cars to current specifications before they are transported to the dealers by rail or road.
CFS – service to forwarders
An important service at the Car Terminal is CFS, Container Freight Service. This means that the shipping lines are offered preparation and handling of ro-ro units and that all customers linked to the Port of Gothenburg are offered stuffing/stripping of containers and platforms. The flow of goods into and out of the port can take place by sea, road or rail.
