From the total 127,000 sq m of allocated land for the logistics terminal, about 60,000 sq m is planned to be used for construction of necessary building and facilities.

The port has terminals for transshipment of oil products, cars, Ro-Ro and container cargo, as well as passenger terminals. Gothenburg is the only Swedish port able to receive the world’s largest container ships operating on international lines.
