The pure car truck carrier City of St. Petersburg called at the terminal on December 7 carrying 1,200 cars, which were unloaded by Scandinavian Auto Logistics (SAL).

SAL is the first tenant at the 40,000 sq m terminal, which has been developed by the port to cater to increasing demand for cars, project cargoes and other goods.

Port Esbjerg’s chief commercial officer, Jesper Bank, said: “I’m so pleased that the terminal is now in operation and being used by the companies at the port. I hope that it will help to strengthen intermodal traffic throughout Europe and make moving goods by sea a more attractive mode of transport.”

There is direct access from the terminal to the E20 motorway, and from the three ro-ro ramps that have been installed at the quay. It is also connected to the two other multipurpose terminals at the port.
