Gothenburg – the best logistics location in Sweden - For almost two decades Gothenburg has been ranked as Sweden’s number one logistics location. Why? Because at the heart of our region we have Port of Gothenburg, the largest port in Scandinavia, and also major new logistics establishments, new land areas, a highly efficient transport infrastructure and advanced education and research.

Join our Christmas countdown! 🎄 The Gothenburg region is the Innovation Powerhouse of Sweden. In 2019, with 33.4 percent of companies' national R&D expenditure invested in our region we passed Stockholm as innovation leader. We also account for 64 percent of the total increase in Sweden. The larger the investment in research and development, the greater the chance of innovations and new jobs being created. Gothenburg being no 1 is no coincidence. Here we dare to test - we have more test beds than any other region in Sweden. And in our Science Parks it's bubbling with innovative power. For example Lindholmen Science Park, both a dynamic area and an arena for collaboration across geographical borders.
