In order to achieve continued growth, the Port of Gävle and Yilport Gävle are now doubling the container capacity. The expansion, which increases the capacity to 600,000 TEU annually, is expected to be completed in 2019.
It’s now definite. The Turkish port operator Yilport took over the operation of the Port of Gävle on May 2nd 2016. The agreement states that the municipality-owned Port of Gävle owns the port itself, which means land and infrastructure, while all operations are privatized and controlled by a 30-year contract.
