SKARABORG LOGISTIC CENTER

The region's most sustainable logistics location

Logistics that save money, time and the environment
Skaraborg and the Gothenburg region are the best place in Scandinavia and northern Europe for efficient sustainable logistics solutions. The Foundation is the geographical location, but more importantly is the concentrated competence, surface and capacity we can offer through the Skaraborg Logistic Center (SLC). Modern, fast, cost-effective and sustainable transport by road and rail means that companies in our region save money, time and the environment – and can thus continue to grow!

Save money! Competitive cost situation for land and transport.

Save time! Fast connection with the port of Gothenburg and the continent.

Save the Environment! Sustainable transport, renewable fuels and district heating.

Your link to the world
Skaraborg Logistic Center is the effective sustainable link between the business community in Skaraborg and the rest of the world. Here is the Gothenburg region's best logistics hub with connection to the western and southern Main Line and direct connection to the port of Gothenburg.

SLC is a unique collaboration between private and public actors, with continuous strong investments for continued expansion. The base is a strong cluster around logistics and transport, based on solid industrial expertise, focus on modern logistics solutions and long railway history. 

Underway
In the coming years, there will be major investments in rail infrastructure. Jula Logistics AB will further develop Dryport Skaraborg at Marjarp with two additional handling tracks and extended terminal space.

The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency has approved the construction of a new handover railway yard, which means that a grant of 50 percent of the cost is secured. The new rail yard will create the necessary conditions for a future expansion in terms of transhipment between train and truck. The construction means that SLC and its terminals will be able to handle more and longer trains than today. The railway yard is being built to handle 750 m long trains and is expected to be operational by 2022.

The new handover rail yard is expected to secure jobs through increased competitiveness, but also contribute to better access to efficient and climate-friendly transport in the region. The climate benefit linked to the investment is estimated to be a reduction of 14 million kilos of carbon dioxide per year.

In addition to the construction of the new handover yard, there is a state investment to enable the rail yard's connection to the state-owned bypass track. In addition to being able to handle more and longer trains, the connection also enables the direct arrival and departure of freight trains in Skövde and northwards. The cost of this part is estimated at 45 million. The implementation and financing will be governed by a future agreement between Falköping municipality and the Swedish Transport Administration.

"We have got a much better and more efficient management of our freight management"

Back in 2013, we took an environmental decision to transfer as much goods as possible from road to rail. There, SLC has been an important partner with its efficient infrastructure, geographical location and that they also serve as an extended arm to the port of Gothenburg.

"Since 2019 Samskip has been a customer of the intermodal terminal."

The flexibility of the SLC Terminal is very important for Samskip . Short lines and quick decisions is one of the keys for our Railbusiness. And the Skaraborg industry is positive to Intermodal solutions. Samskip is able to offer Intermodal solutions from this part of Sweden to Germany – Benelux – Italy – Turkey – Switzerland, Portugal and Ireland. And we see support from Skaraborg municipality, which is very important for joint future development.
