A year ago, APM Terminals Gothenburg introduced the Gothenburg Gateway to accelerate the development of Sweden’s goods transports, having identified the need for Sweden to keep pace as global goods transports grow in scale and become more efficient. APM Terminals Gothenburg is now taking the next steps towards becoming a more efficient gateway by introducing Green Gothenburg Gateway on December 6th at a launch event in front of key stakeholders. Work has already commenced to make the terminals’ container handling fossil free, and transport of all customer goods through the terminal will already be fossil free by next year. APM Terminals Gothenburg will also be able to offer their customers fully climate-neutral cargo handling through the terminal.

Gothenburg’s container terminal is used by Sweden’s largest exporting and importing firms. A clear signal from the Swedish business sector to APM Terminals Gothenburg is that climate impact needs to be reduced, but an equally clear signal is that this mustn’t result in higher costs and decreased competitiveness. Therefore, the conversion will be done at no cost to customers and will not affect the speed or reliability of cargo handling.

APM Terminals Gothenburg is doing this not only to meet customer demand, but also as their major contribution to Sweden’s ambitious climate target for the transport sector. The Swedish Parliament has decided that by 2030, greenhouse gas emissions from the country’s domestic transports will be 70 per cent lower than 2010 levels.
