At the moment, surface preparations are underway at a forthcoming cross docking terminal at the Port of Gothenburg. Export cargo such as paper- and carton board, pulp and sawed timber will be able to travel directly into the terminal for transloading into containers or trailers for onward transport by sea to global markets.
The world’s largest storage tent – 21,600 square metres (equivalent to around three football pitches) – will be built on the 45,000 square metre terminal site, which will allow transloading to take place without being exposed to the elements.
Apart from the tent, there will be open storage areas and five rail tracks. The track leading into the tent will be a production track and the other four tracks will be used as marshalling tracks for the facility.
