North Sea Port and the Port of Gothenburg have signed an agreement to work closely together. Setting up a network of medium-sized European ports and working on energy management in the ports are central to this.

The ports have things in common: the Volvo Car factories that are located in both ports, and the daily roro ships from DFDS, sailing between Gothenburg and Ghent.

The ports want

  • to strengthen their commercial interests and support the flow of goods between the two ports
  • to share knowledge in the field of energy management in the port. This concerns the introduction of renewable energy sources, environmental management and sustainable port management. To this end, research into further digitization will be carried out. In this context, the ports will exchange employees in the future.
  • to check whether they can jointly submit projects for European financing in the fields of sustainability, energy transition, digitization, and the European transport network.

The agreement was signed during a visit by North Sea Port to the Port of Gothenburg on Wednesday 20 April.
