Port conflict issues can have a significant impact on port performance (Galvao et al., 2016). With that fact in mind, this study aims to outline the basic events of the Port of Gothenburg (Sweden) conflict and the logistical disturbances that have arisen since June 2016. Thus, this report starts with a description of the most important international port conflicts that have occurred during the last decade. Following that, an in-depth examination of the Port of Gothenburg’s conflict is laid out. First, the organization of the Swedish port system is reviewed. Second, the importance of container cargo and intermodal transportation in the Port of Gothenburg is stated. Third, the study traces a chronological investigation of the port dispute, categorizing all agents involved in the dispute as well as the consequences of their actions. Finally, the main conclusions and policy implications are discussed in the last section.
