Gothenburg Port Authority has decided to leave the Port Tariff unchanged. As a result, the Port Tariff for 2016 will remain at the 2015 level.

All ships calling at the Port of Gothenburg pay a port charge based on the ship's gross weight and classification. The port charge is used to finance, for example, fairway maintenance, traffic information systems and safety at the port….

Ships that demonstrate good environmental performance receive a discount on the port charge at the Port of Gothenburg. Two indexes are used as a basis for calculating the environmental discount – the Environmental Ship Index, which is used at many ports throughout the world, and the Clean Shipping Index, which is an environmental index where the cargo owners rate ships and shipping companies. Ships that switch to running on liquefied natural gas, LNG, receive a further discount….

A further port charge discount is aimed at inland shipping. Ships that are classed according to the Inland Waterway standard and operate in the Gothenburg–Lake Vänern area, receive a generous 25 per cent discount on the port charge.
