Port of Gothenburg and partners to use Routescanner for container planning

The Port of Gothenburg, Logistics Overijssel and Haeger & Schmidt have announced the introduction of the Routescanner online route planner for containers, to provide better visualisation of their entire container transport network for customers.

Gothenburg and Overijssel will offer Routescanner Direct Connections on their websites, displaying all available container connections via the ports and providing users with an overview of the available routes, including information such as lead times and frequencies. Logistics firm Haeger & Schmidt will also be supplying Direct Connections itself, becoming the first operator to present a visualisation of its multi-modal container routes via Routescanner.

“Transparency and sustainability are important values for the Port of Gothenburg. We do everything we can to offer our customers the conditions needed for effective and sustainable decisions,” said Jacob Minnhagen, Senior Market Development Manager at the Gothenburg Port Authority.

“With Routescanner, we are taking the next step by providing access to a digital infrastructure that visualises our sea and hinterland connections, services, and sustainability values. The result is significant added value for our customers.”

Routescanner currently offers information on container schedules from more than 200 operators, processing more than 750,000 schedules each day for a network of more than 4,500 terminals worldwide.
