The Port of Gothenburg


The Port of Gothenburg is located on the west coast of Sweden and is today the largest port in the Scandinavia.

About two thirds of the tonnage is crude oil, refined products and chemicals. Three refineries are situated at Gothenburg, operated by Preem AB, ST1 Refinery AB and Nynäs AB (bitumen products). The port is capable of accommodating VLCC´s with a draft up to 19,05 m.

Safe Ship to Ship operations can be managed in Torshamnen (part of Port of Gothenburg) in connection with cargo operations with local shore operators.

The port of Gothenburg is the main container and car handling port in Sweden.

Gothenburg has become an attractive destination for cruise operators, and this market is growing fast in Gothenburg. Several services may also be carried out at inner or outer anchorages weather permitting.

The port is accessible all year round and 24 hrs per day.
