The Port of Gothenburg is investing EUR 17.3m (US$23m) in building a new logistics centre for DB Schenker. The 24,000 sq m facility will be used mainly to store imported goods in preparation for onward transportation to Swedish consumers.

Gothenburg to build a huge new logistics centre

According to Mats Olsson, President of Schenker Logistics AB, Gothenburg is an ideal logistics location for imports. \”Proximity to the Port and the rest of the infrastructure means that we can deliver goods to the city regions such as Stockholm, Oslo, Malmö/Copenhagen and Gothenburg within a day,\” he said

The new logistics centre will also generate increased volumes for the Port of Gothenburg. The terminal will have the capacity to handle 5,000 teu annually, a large proportion of which will be completely new volumes for the port which currently handles around 900,000 teu a year.

Construction will commence in January and the building is scheduled for completion in December 2013. The project has been developed by the Port of Gothenburg in collaboration with DB Schenker who will lease the premises, and NCC who will be responsible for construction.

\”It will be a modern logistics facility, environmentally classified according to Green Building standards,\” said Henrik Bergman Head of the NCC Construction Business Area.
