WE ARE THE ONES WHO SHIP FOREST PRODUCTS
At the Port of Gothenburg you have a wider choice of shipping lines than at any other port in Scandinavia. Here you can acquaint yourself with a number of the companies that are ready and waiting to ship your forest products from Gothenburg to destinations far and wide.
ACL is the only shipping company with direct container and ro-ro services from Sweden to North America. Ships leave Gothenburg each week, bound for a series of ports on the east coast of Canada and the USA.
ANDERS IVARSSON, COMMERCIAL OPERATIONS MANAGER
"We have the most rapid transit times in the industry for exports to Canada and the USA."
With ACL, Halifax in Canada can be reached in 13 days, New York in 15 days and Baltimore in 17 days.
"With our weekly departures, we also have frequent departures on direct routes to North America."
The ships carry containers, ro-ro units and breakbulk, which could take the form of timber and paper loaded on Mafi trailers in large packages. In 2015, completely new ships will be brought into service from Gothenburg.
"We are growing at breakneck speed with new ships about to be brought into operation. Larger ships mean increased capacity, more sustainable transport and reduced emissions per unit. We have noticed that the forestry industry is demanding a higher departure frequency to North America for timber, paper and pulp. We are pleased that we are able to satisfy this demand through our weekly direct service from Gothenburg."
