|Intermodal terminal to move to port|
|Wednesday, November 2, 2016, Gothenburg, Sweden|
|Plans are in place to move the intermodal freight terminal currently located in the central city of Gothenburg to the Port of Gothenburg. The switch will allow a higher proportion of transport by rail instead of road……At the beginning of 2018, the intermodal terminal will need to be moved to allow future development of the city. Following an agreement between the City of Gothenburg and the Swedish Transport Administration, it has now been confirmed that the terminal will be relocated to the Arken area next to Gothenburg Roro Terminal in the Port of Gothenburg.
“As approximately 70% of the freight is related to the port, Volvo or other activities near the port, it will be an extremely advantageous location,” said Arvid Guthed, Vice President Port Development at the Gothenburg Port Authority.
On a normal weekday, 12 trains and 200 trucks arrive at and depart from the terminal. Apart from domestic trains, there are also departures for various destinations in Europe. During the course of a year, around 70,000 trailers are switched from one mode of transport to the other at the intermodal terminal…
…Apart from the intermodal terminal, there is also extensive cross docking of other products at the present terminal, including timber and paper, which arrive at the terminal by rail. These operations will cease on March 31, 2017…
…The new terminal will be located beside Gothenburg Roro Terminal. Trailers will be transported from the ro-ro terminals by ship to different destinations, including the United Kingdom and Belgium…
