Extensive system of rail shuttles
The extensive system of rail shuttles is being constantly developed. At present, there are around 25 shuttles operating to and from large areas of Sweden and into Norway. The daily rail shuttles mean that large volumes of goods can be transported efficiently to and from the port.
The system, Railport Scandinavia, has been developed by the Port of Gothenburg and means that close collaboration can be maintained with what are termed 'dry harbours' At these inland harbours, which are located throughout Sweden, customers can drop off and collect their containers locally.
