Container traffic rose by 2% during the third quarter compared with the corresponding period last year, the Port of Gothenburg has announced. In total 208,000 teu moved through the port during the quarter.
However, the January-September figures tell a different story, with traffic down 5% compared to 2013.
Gothenburg handles almost 60% of all the containers shipped to and from Sweden. Exports include paper, steel, timber products and food; while imports are largely in the form of consumer goods such as clothes and food, as well as industrial components and electronics.
