Port of Gävle’s major investment a game changer in Gävle

The extensive investments in the Port of Gävle are now being implemented with full force. For Yilport and Port of Gävle, this means a SEK 1.2 billion investment to equip the new container terminal with cranes and all other technology needed to service ever-larger vessels, as well as being able to handle the 1,200 TEU / week that the unique automated high stock for paper products will generate.
 
“Gävle has a unique location in the heart of a region with several of the largest Swedish export industries. Our investment strategy is long-term. One of the challenges for the Swedish export industry has been the lack of investment in the logistics chain's port assets. We are here to change that with a brand new container port and significantly increased productivity,” says Eryn Dinyovszky, CEO Yilport Nordic.
 
All the major shipping companies are already present in Gävle, including Maersk, MSC, OOCL, Cosco, Hapag Lloyd, and CMA CGM.
 
“The Port of Gävle has played an important role in our growth in recent years. Our export and import volumes have increased in both short and deep sea. We are looking very positively at the investments that the port is now making to attract more goods which can lower the cost per unit. Then our volumes will increase as well,” says Jonatan Östberg, Commercial Manager at CMA CGM Sweden.
 
The large investments in Gävle are made in close cooperation between the municipality-owned Gävle Hamn AB and Yilport. The new container terminal will be operational during 2021.
