Port of Gothenburg, North Sea Port to create medium-sized European ports network

North Sea Port and the Port of Gothenburg have signed a five-year agreement to set up a network of medium-sized European ports and work on energy management in the ports.

The Dutch-Belgian North Sea Port and the Swedish Port of Gothenburg will jointly launch the creation of a network of medium-sized European ports aiming to exchange knowledge between similar ports and investigate further cooperation between them.

"A collaboration between two medium-sized seaports is quite unusual. I look forward to strengthening our commercial interests to further embed employment in our ports and to establishing a network of similar European ports," commented Daan Schalck, North Sea Port CEO.

The ports also want to reinforce their commercial interests and support the flow of goods between the two ports. Additionally, the two partners want to share knowledge and good examples 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 digitisation will be carried out. In this context, the ports will exchange employees in the future," said the ports in a joint statement.

Finally, the two parties are also looking into whether they can jointly submit projects for European financing in the field of sustainability, energy transition, digitisation and the European transport network.

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

Elvir Dzanic, Gothenburg Port Authority CEO, said, "We have had a long and fruitful relationship with North Sea Port for many years, with daily traffic connecting the ports. We are very happy to expand this relationship further, which I’m sure will make us more competitive as a port."
