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.
COST-EFFECTIVE, SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT IS OUR STRENGTH

EBBE BISGAARD, SHORTSEA MANAGER:
"We have the largest network in northern Europe, from the United Kingdom in the west to the Baltic Countries and Russia in the east. In total, we cover 45 ports in Western Europe and Russia is one of our strongest markets. We can also offer good door-to-door solutions for transport to land-bound countries, such as Switzerland and Austria.
"The industry is currently undergoing considerable changes. Many people are looking for more cost-effective but at the same time sustainable transport solutions. Over longer distances, to Russia and Ireland for example, which are countries in which we are strong, sea transport is an ideal alternative in terms of cost compared with using trailer traffic and rail the whole way. And when it comes to sustainability it is unbeatable, particularly now, following the introduction of the sulphur regulations.
"Container traffic also offers a major advantage – transport safety. The goods are not damaged during transport. Now that sawn timber, paper and pulp can be transshipped at the Port of Gothenburg, this opens up completely new scope for the country's sawmills and paper mills."
