Skaraborg Eco Shuttle is a freight solution that connects the entire Skaraborg region with the port of Gothenburg - and the rest of the world.
The port of Gothenburg is Scandinavia's largest port and the only one in Sweden with direct lines for container traffic to China, USA, India and the Middle East. With daily train departures from the port, Skaraborg's Eco Shuttle is the region's most reliable freight option.
You can move your goods smoothly to and from the port of Gothenburg and avoid depot fees and road tolls. Furthermore good capacity and availability means that we can quickly offer flexible solutions to accommodate greater needs.
The goods are transported by train between Gothenburg and Falköping where they are reloaded at Skaraborg Logistic Center for transport by truck.
In such a way, you get the best of the two transport methods. A train large load capacity, reliability and environmental benefits. And the truck transport's direct access to your loading dock by drivers who know the local area well.
