The terminals are strategically located near population centres, but, most importantly, with convenient connections to ports, rail routes and major roads. There is a short stop at the terminal for immediate reloading.
Terminals are often the first establishment at a new logistics location.
What happens in a terminal?
A terminal is primarily designed for the transshipment of cargo and goods that are received and delivered on the same day. Goods arrive there from manufacturers and distributors in Sweden and elsewhere in the world, by sea, air, rail and road. Some are container terminals that are especially well equipped for transferring cargo from one mode of transport to another.
Terminals are generally operated by one of the major third-party logistics players and several hundred customers may be served by a single terminal.
