Case Study: Gothenburg-Shanghai

Map of climate impact apm terminals gothenburgIn collaboration with IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, APM Terminals can provide climate calculations so you can work out which routes and modes of transport are most sustainable. In the example below, we see that trains from northern Sweden to Gothenburg and onward journeys by ocean-going ship to Rotterdam emit 82% less CO2 than transports along the long east coast of Sweden.
