Customers hurried to Port of Gävle´s new warehouseThe two new warehouses at Port of Gävle´s Terminal Granudden were longed for. Even before the doors were in place, they were filled with cardboard rolls from the main customer BillerudKorsnäs. 16 000 tonnes of paper products are now stored on 10 000 m2.
“When we opened in October, the warehouses filled up quickly. It actually began filling up just before we got the doors in place. So, of course, even though we knew the demand existed when decisions were made about more storage space this spring, this is obviously something our customers really appreciate,” says Terminal Manager Stefan Andersson.
The investment strengthens Granudden's position as a significant export terminal for the Swedish paper industry. In addition to BillerudKorsnäs, Swedpaper also stores and stuffs at Terminal Granudden. Both companies' production facilities are located right next to the terminal, and close contacts and cooperation between the parties are simple as well as important for efficient flows and handling of loads.
Every week, seven trains with 39 forty-foot containers each, run the short distance to Port of Gävle Container terminal on the other side of the bay.
“Mainly, everything we store and stuff are destined for overseas markets. Annually, about 550,000 tonnes of paper and cardboard will depart from Granudden by rail and then onwards from Gävle Container Terminal, in particular,” says Stefan Andersson.
