New direct cargo service links Port of Gothenburg to South Africa, Oceania

Sweden’s Port of Gothenburg began a regular direct service to South Africa and Oceania on Friday, March 12.

The Norwegian shipping company Höegh Autoliners will operate the new service, with departures from the port every other week.

The new service will include a call at the Port of Gothenburg every other week. On arrival at the final destination, Auckland in New Zealand, the vessel will return to Gothenburg, taking in ports throughout East Asia.

The new service will present further opportunities for Swedish import customers to bring goods into Sweden and Scandinavia. With the new service, goods can also be linked up with other global markets via ports on the continent.

Shipments from Gothenburg are expected to include cars, heavy vehicles, construction equipment, and large project loads.
