We are pleased to present our new brochure!
The brochure is available in the traditional paper format, but also in a digital version. With this brochure we want to present ourselves in a new way with our three core values - Committed, Experienced and Adaptable, in focus.
"With over a hundred years' experience of port operations we can say with confidence that we know what we are doing. But we are not so sure that everyone else knows it. We want to use this
brochure to explain a few things. What we do, why we do it and how we will continue to do it. Welcome to Uddevalla Hamnterminal
– welcome to a safe haven."

Welcome to Uddevalla Hamnterminal
In connection with work on the brochure, we have also recorded a short commercial film with the same theme.
Gothenburg is growing, and this creates opportunities for Uddevalla Hamnterminal
Soon, a big part of eastern Gothenburg and Hisingen will turn into a big construction site - Älvstaden. 25 000 new apartments and 45 000 new offices will be built here.
The possibilities for Uddevalla Hamnterminal to play a major role in the logistics chain for the project cargo and construction elements in connection with different construction projects will increase. We have large areas to offer and can serve as a hub to deliver just-in-time to various construction sites.

580 000 m² of space with us can be a great asset for transports to the largest construction project in the nordic region, covering eight districts in total.

New rules for verified gross weight (VGM) for containers
SOLAS Convention (Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea) have established new rules on verification of the total weight of the container.
In short, the new rules mean that the total weight of the containers must be verified prior to loading on ships. This can be done in two ways; either by weighing the loaded container or by weighing each package and lashing equipment then added together with the tare weight. This shall be done according to the certified and approved method in connection with the sealing of the container.

Uddevalla Hamnterminal has the opportunity to weigh containers and issuing weight certificates. We will follow the development on adjacent introduction of the new rules July 1, 2016.
CEO's statement
We are pleased put 2015, a very positive year, behind us. Consolidated earnings landed at 4.8 million before tax, and we handled 1.062 million tons of cargo over our quays, which is an increase of 8% compared to the year before. The terminal volumes have also shown a strong growth.
Our ambition for 2015 was to make a bigger deal out of all ongoing customer relationships. This work, together with a general strengthening of the industrial sector in Sweden during the past year, resulted in a substantial increase in the flow of goods over our quays, mainly in the second half.
2016 has started well and of course - we have the capacity to handle even more cargo. Efforts to develop good and sustainable logistics to our customers continues.

Ulf Stenberg, CEO
New employees!

We wish to welcome two new stevedores to our company, Marie-Louise and Martin.
