"Green Trucks" to be Given Priority at Port of Gothenburg

From 1st January 2022, battery powered or fuel cell powertrain trucks will be given priority when boarding Stena Line vessels at the Port of Gothenburg's two Gothenburg-Kiel and RoRo terminals.

Green trucks will be allowed to bypass queues at the two terminals. They will be guided directly to the vessel or to a dedicated "Green Priority" waiting area.

"Our goal is to grow sustainably in partnership with our customers. At Stena Line we are adopting new measures on a daily basis as part of our sustainable transition, and we will incentivise our customers to follow suit on the road to establishing fossil-free operations. With the Green Priority project, we offer defined efficiency benefits to companies that use electrically powered trucks, which is not only a boost for the companies but also for our climate in the short, medium, and long term."

Niclas Mårtensson, Stena Line chief executive.

This new priority service is to encourage haulage companies to go green with their vehicle fleets. Electrically powered trucks are rewarded with efficiency benefits and shorter lead times.

"The rationale behind the Green Priority project is to demonstrate how the transition to fossil-free fuels can have a tangible impact on industry. Although the transition of the transport sector as a whole will require far more time and effort, with Green Priority we have a clear, readily accessible concept that is a significant step along the way. We have the opportunity and capacity to add an extra green lane at our terminal, and it will be very interesting to see how Green Priority evolves."

Maria Franksen, Gothenburg RoRo Terminal chief executive.

The overall goal of the Green Priority project is to reduce port-related emissions by 70% by 2030.
