New freight service to Gothenburg – links to Norway and Poland

A new freight service will commence at the start of 2021, linking Gothenburg to the industrialised Western Region in Norway via the ports in Stavanger, Bergen, Sunndal and Ålesund.

The service will also include the Polish port of Swinoujscie, which will in turn open up further trade options with central Europe. Vessels will visit Gothenburg on a weekly basis.

The new service will be operated by the Norwegian shipping company Sea-Cargo, which has its headquarters on the west coast of Norway.

“This service is a unique initiative with access to numerous volume sources. Available industrial volumes will form the core and make the service possible, and we have received an overwhelming response from the market. We are looking forward to linking into the Port of Gothenburg service network and ensuring traffic gets under way,” said Tore Knudsen, Director, Shipping Division at Sea-Cargo.

In preparation for the new service, Sea-Cargo will open an office at the Port of Gothenburg to establish even closer operational links.

This service is entirely new for the Port of Gothenburg, which will acquire further points of contact that can be added to its global service network. Sea-Cargo is a new shipping company at the port with an offer that fits in well with the port’s focus on expanding short-sea traffic.

“Most of the freight was previously transported by road but now we have a sustainable short-sea solution. We are pleased to be able to broaden our service base, generating new opportunities for many,” said Jacob Minnhagen, Senior Market Development Manager at the Gothenburg Port Authority.
