No tariff increases for third year
Friday, November 10, 2017, Gothenburg, Sweden
Gothenburg Port Authority has opted to keep the Port Tariff unchanged for the third year in succession. The charges for 2018 will thus be on the same level as 2015.

Port charges are levied on all vessels that call at the Port of Gothenburg. The charges are based on vessel type and gross tonnage, and are used to finance a range of activities, including fairway maintenance, traffic information and port safety…

[Gothenburg Port Authority] has managed to avoid the need for tariff increases through good cost control. Hopefully this will inspire other companies and organisations involved in logistics operations to review their charges…

…A system is already in place whereby good environmental performance is rewarded with a discount on the port charge at the Port of Gothenburg. Two globally recognised indexes are used as a basis for the discount system, for which one-third of vessels that call at the port are eligible. Vessels that switch to running on liquefied natural gas, LNG, receive a further discount…

…The discount period for calls by cruise ships will now run through to the end of December…

…The Port Tariff is available at www.portofgothenburg.com/porttariff
