The Port of Gothenburg – Scandinavia’s gateway to China and the world


Photo: Port of Gothenburg

Established in 1620 the Port of Gothenburg has been important for the transports between Sweden, and the world for 400 years. The trade between Sweden and China has since the opening of the port grown exponentially and today one container ship from China transports as much as the entire goods transports between our two countries from 1731 to 1813 when the Swedish East-Indian Company operated.

Today some 800 000 containers flow in and out of the Port of Gothenburg, and the trade between Sweden and China make up for a quarter of that total container flow. This means that a vast majority of the trade between Sweden and China pass through the port of Gothenburg. The Port of Gothenburg is Sweden’s major logistics hub for the Scandinavian countries, where a third of Swedish export and import of goods pass each year.

Welcome to join us for this lunch presentation focusing on the logistics perspective in trade and transports between Sweden and China and how the Belt and Road Initiative will affect the Port of Gothenburg.
