Skandia Gateway is a collaborative venture between the Swedish Maritime Administration, the Gothenburg Port Authority, and the Swedish Transport Administration. Skandia Gateway will ensure direct services to Sweden and access to the whole world for Swedish industry.
The Port of Gothenburg is currently the only Swedish port that can receive the world’s largest container vessels and by doing so offer direct deep-sea services to other continents.
Container vessels are growing in size and the fairway leading into the port needs to be deepened by up to five metres.
