In connection with the transaction, a concession agreement will be entered into concerning the operation of the terminal and related infrastructure. The acquisition is subject to approval of the relevant competition authorities.The transaction was the last of three in relation to the privatization process of the terminal operations in the Port of Gothenburg.
