Liner Services

The Port of Gothenburg has very extensive liner services to key import and export markets throughout the world. Apart from regular traffic to and from countries in Europe, there are several direct lines to other parts of the world. This means that goods that are imported or exported from or to the USA, China, India, Australia or the Middle East do not need to be transshipped at another port. The Port of Gothenburg liner services include around 140 liner services.

Traffic with transshipment
Apart from lines that go directly to the final destination, there is regular feeder traffic to all the major ports in continental Europe.

Each week, we have 230 visits by vessels. This means almost 12,000 visits every year. In addition, 70 trains arrive or leave every day, 25 of which are shuttles with daily departures that link the Port of Gothenburg with towns and cities throughout Sweden and Norway. The regular rail traffic and good road links mean that large areas of Scandinavia have easy access to the wide range of sea lines from the Port of Gothenburg. Click here to access to our liner services map, which shows all our direct lines.
