The Arken Combi Terminal at the Port of Gothenburg has recently been officially opened. Freight can now switch between road, rail and sea at the quayside, and can do so much more efficiently than before. The new terminal will result in higher freight capacity, improved transport efficiency, and cleaner air.

More than 100 trucks a day will now avoid having to negotiate their way through the centre of Gothenburg.

The newly opened Arken Combi Terminal is a 65,000-square metre terminal, located beside the container and ro-ro terminals in the outer port area. Containers and trailers can switch between road, rail and sea for onward movement to destinations throughout Sweden and the rest of the world.

The combi terminal has been in operation since the turn of the year and already handles more freight than the old terminal at Gullbergsvass, which has now been closed. There, five trains were handled per day. Already, seven trains per day are handled in the Arken Combi Terminal and the figure is expected to increase shortly. More than 100,000 trailers a year are expected to change from one mode of transport to another at the new terminal.
