The new containerterminal

The capacity of the largest container terminal on the east coast is about to be doubled. Port of Gävle and Yilport are co-investing to meet the increasing demand for container transport. In 2021 a new container terminal will be opened that will increase capacity to 600,000 TEU*. At the same time, we will create opportunities for more warehouses and for more companies to set up operations in close proximity to the port. All global container shipping companies already transport through Port of Gävle, and now the container port will be expanded to be able to receive more and larger vessels.

*1 TEU corresponds to a 20-foot container.

Strategically located just north of Stockholm and right next to the industrial Central Sweden region, Port of Gävle is a natural east coast hub for import and export. Large ships can dock efficiently in the port for quick loading and unloading at our container terminal, bulk terminal, kombi terminal and energy terminal. Port of Gävle is located only two hours from Stockholm. First-class road and rail connections, with comparably little traffic and queues, make it easy for goods owners in Stockholm and Mid Sweden to export and import via Port of Gävle.

There is also plenty of space for setting up quayside premises. Strategically positioned close to the terminals of the port with connection to main lines in all directions, double-tracks to Stockholm and two main motorways, our logistics park is located with 20 HA available land.
