Port of Gävle - Bulk terminal

Bulk terminal

The bulk terminal handles materials and supplies to the primary industries (for example clay, alloys, scrap, concentrates and biofuels) as well as project cargoes where requirements on the lifting capacity and intermediary storage area are high (for example modular buildings and wind turbines). The bulk terminal comprises four dock areas where various types of vessels can load and unload. There are a number of large warehouses directly on the docks and there are also large storage areas close to the docks for intermediate storage of freight. Yilport Gävle operates the bulk terminal.
