Container terminal

Port of Gävle handles approximately 170 000 TEU* annually, which makes it the east coast’s largest container terminal. Feeder ships are loaded and off-loaded here. They transport containers to and from Europe’s larger ports where they are then re-loaded for their final destination out in the world. The terminal is operated by Gävle Containerterminal (GCT), which is 80% owned by Yilport Holdings Inc and 20% owned by Gävle Stadshus AB.
