For the second year in a row, the Gothenburg region with Swedavia’s airport Göteborg Landvetter Airport has been named Sweden's leading logistics location by the trade magazine Intelligent Logistik. Through the development of cargo and logistics areas, new destinations och a strong attractiveness as a workplace, Göteborg Landvetter Airport is one of the hubs in the region's logistics, transport and communication. This year's jury notes that the collaboration Logistic Hub Scandinavia, which includes Göteborg Landvetter Airport together with the Nordics' largest container port, the Port of Gothenburg and Business Region Gothenburg, has an outstanding growth in logistics and continues to be the country's main logistics hub. This year, the award is shared with the Helsingborg region.

"This award strengthens Gothenburg as an important logistics hub in Sweden, and it is very gratifying for Swedavia and Göteborg Landvetter Airport that the region has once again received this honour. Accessibility and efficient logistical flows to the rest of the world are of great importance for an export-oriented region like Gothenburg and Sweden as a country. Göteborg Landvetter, located between Gothenburg and Borås, is western Sweden's gateway to the world and contributes with more direct routes and freight opportunities to Europe and the rest of the world, as well as land areas for the establishment of new, modern and efficient logistics properties. Thanks to our unique location in the heart of Scandinavia, close to the Oslo-Copenhagen-Stockholm axis, Göteborg Landvetter is already a comprehensive logistics hub and an important hub for intercontinental cargo," says Anna Strömwall, Airport Director Göteborg Landvetter Airport at Swedavia.

In 2023, Göteborg Landvetter handled around 950 tonnes of freight and is planning for the emergence of the new Logistics Park within Airport City Göteborg as the centre for future logistics at the airport through modern and efficient logistic buildings.

Göteborg Landvetter Airport is one of the largest workplaces in the Gothenburg region and employs more than 4,000 people in around 100 companies. Göteborg Landvetter offers a wide range of destinations of around 60 routes, of which more than 15 are charter destinations.

Last year, roughly 5 million travelers passed through the airport, which is an increase of 17 percent compared to 2022. International travel increased by 18 percent, while domestic travel increased by 8 percent.
