Keeping up with the industry’s digital evolution, port of Gothenburg joined forces with Wabtec to implement Port Optimizer, a tool that will digitize maritime shipping data for cargo owners and supply chain stakeholders through secure, channeled access.
Port of Gothenburg
From 2021, the Gothenburg Port Authority will use new procurement stipulations for selected contracts in order to reduce carbon emissions at the port and promote the use of greener construction equipment and methods.
On Thursday, Gothenburg City Council passed a resolution to grant more than 1,2 billion kronor (€120,000,000) to finance the Skandia Gateway project, which is aimed at deepening the fairway leading into the Port of Gothenburg.
Port of Gothenburg’s new transshipment terminal known as “Svea Terminal” will be soon fully operational, as it is expected to open its doors during autumn.
Overcoming the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Port of Gothenburg announced positive results in its freight volums which remained high during the first quarter of 2020.
Most ports throughout the world have been forced to re-examine their routines, as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. With this in mind, Port of Gothenburg noted the pandemic could accelerate digitalization in what is an otherwise conservative shipping industry.
Following the COVID-19 oubreak, Port of Gothenburg announced that continues its freight operations as normal. Although, due to the large amount of passengers and crewmembers within the cruises’ arrivals, the port has set several safety measures to avoid the spread of the disease.
The Port of Gothenburg Authority announced that from now on, on its own initiative, will request a Maritime Declaration of Health from all vessels calling at the port, beginning from Monday, February 3, 2020, until further notice.
Port of Gothenburg recently published its freight figures for 2019, presenting a growth in its container volumes. Specifically, 456.000 TEU were transported through the port’s rail infrastructure, marking the largest rail volume in the port’s 400-year history.
Although the Swedish container market has noted a slight fall of 1%, during the first half of 2019, the Port of Gothenburg announced a steady rise in market share and volume. In the period between January and September this year, the records reported 4% rise, due to large arrival of hinterland rail volumes at the port.
