For the 16th year in succession, Gothenburg has been named as the best logistics location in Sweden by the trade journal Intelligent Logistik.

The road to greener transport can be reached through collaboration with our customers. We offer a whole range of alternatives for shipping companies, freight owners and carriers that are seeking to achieve a more sustainable logistics system.
