Sweden: APM Terminals Gothenburg Welcomes First G6 Vessel Call

 

The recently established G6 Alliance has added direct service Gothenburg, Sweden to its weekly Far East/Europe port rotation with the first vessel call of the APL Finland at APM Terminals Gothenburg, the busiest container facility in Scandinavia.

The G6 Alliance was created in December 2011 through the consolidation of the New World Alliance member lines APL, of Singapore; Hyundai Merchant Marine, of South Korea; and Mitsui O.S.K, of Japan, with Grand Alliance member lines NYK, of Japan; OOCL, of Hong Kong; and Hapag-Lloyd, of Germany. The new alliance operates a combined fleet of more than 90 containerships on nine strings serving more than 40 ports in Northern Europe, the Mediterranean and the Far East.

The G6 weekly call is the second direct service linking Gothenburg with Asia, and will provide links to the Chinese ports of Shanghai and Ningbo, as well as Singapore in Southeast Asia; Jeddah on the Red Sea; Tangier, Morocco in the Mediterranean and Bremerhaven and Rotterdam in North Europe.

“We are very proud to welcome the G6” said APM Terminals Gothenburg Managing Director Keld Pedersen, adding “we have added two new liner services this year with MacAndrews (with service to the British Isles) and now the G6, which further strengthen our commercial service as the largest container terminal in the Scandinavian area.”

Gothenburg’s container terminal handled 810,000 TEUs in 2011, and as of January 4th has been operating as APM Terminals Gothenburg. The 25-year concession agreement calls for the investment over $15 million over the next five years, including three new super-post Panamax cranes as the APM Terminals Global Terminal Network establishes Gothenburg’s deep-water facility as a major North European hub for the growing Scandinavian and Baltic markets.
