“The ro-ro trend in Europe has been extremely strong over the past three years. Here in Gothenburg, this can be attributed to stable shipping companies such as Stena Line, DFDS, CLdN and SOL. The high sailing frequency and first-rate service levels offered by these companies will certainly benefit freight owners,” said Claes Sundmark, Vice President, Container, Ro-Ro and Rail at Gothenburg Port Authority.
In Gothenburg, strong flows, with input goods for industry and forest products as the backbone, along with a very good European business climate, have led to this significant increase in frequency. At the same time, the shipping companies are finding the resolve to modernise their fleets with the introduction of new, larger vessels that are more cost-effective and environmentally friendly.
