After the first months of the 2019, the terminal operator in Port of Gävle, Yilport, sees no signs of a weakening economic climate.
“On the contrary, the beginning of 2019 has resulted in increased volumes in all of our Nordic terminals – Stockholm, Oslo and Gävle – with a continued active market and a strong inflow of inquiries from potential customers”, says Håkan Bergström.
For example, the container shipping company MSC is trying out Yilport´s combi terminal Stockholm Nord for empty containers, which then go by rail to Port of Gävle and Gävle Container Terminal (GCT), where they are filled with export goods, and shipped out to the world.
The flow of import goods from GCT, with the destination being the Stockholm metropolitan area, is also increasing significantly. It includes, among else, building materials, furniture, and foodstuffs (large amounts of coffee beans).
