The Swedish port of Gothenberg has opened a new forest products terminal, which is run by Soren Thyr AB. Despite always having had a buoyant trade in paper, pulp and timber products, the port has lacked a dedicated facility to handle sawn timber.
The new terminal has been built next to the RoRo and container terminals and is linked to the national rail network, which will allow it to handle up to 1,000,000m3 of timber annually. At the terminal, the sawn timber is placed into either containers or trailers for onward shipment.
