Commencing in January, the Gothenburg-based rail operator SCT Transport AB will bring a new container shuttle into service between the Port of Gothenburg and Katrineholm. Initially, it will operate three days a week although the aim is to gradually increase the number of departures during the spring with the hope of eventually making it a daily service.
The logistics company Green Cargo already has a container shuttle operating on this route. The town of Katrineholm will now have two shuttles to the Port of Gothenburg and the world beyond.
"Katrineholm is at the midpoint between Norrköping, with its large-scale storage facilities, and Mälardalen, which is a growth region. From a logistics point of view is an extremely good location. The new rail shuttle will generate more climate-smart transport opportunities between these locations and the Port of Gothenburg," said Stig-Göran Thorén, Senior Manager, Business Development, at the Port of Gothenburg.
