“APM Terminals is proud to work with Gothenburg Port Authority to stimulate economic growth in Sweden and to increase our bearing on global trade. If we are to create long-term stability for our customers and employees, it is essential that we find a speedy solution to the current dispute at the container terminal,” said Henrik Kristensen, CEO, APM Terminals Gothenburg.
APM Terminals took over operations at the container terminal in January 2012. In conjunction with the transfer, an investment programme worth 82 million euro was rolled out. The programme will result in extensive upgrading of the terminal, including two new Super Post Panamax ship-to-shore cranes, expansion of the rail system with more and longer tracks, new rail-mounted cranes, and new diesel-electric straddle carriers.
