Climate-smart and cost-efficient transportation.
Sustainability has long been a natural topic in our operations, and we assume social, environmental and financial responsibility. When we talk of sustainable logistics, we don’t just consider the climatic element, but also the traffic safety, punctuality and cost-efficiency of our transports.
Climate-smart and cost-efficient transportation
Green Cargo is the largest train operator in Sweden. There is a wealth of experience on freight transportation within the company, whether it concerns rail logistics or road freight operations. The company’s customers are found in the basic industries, where forestry, steel and paper dominate, but include other sectors, such as the chemical, energy, engineering and automotive industries, as well as the grocery retail sector.

Every weekday, we operate some 400 freight trains, thereby replacing around 9,000 truckloads. We serve close to 270 locations in Scandinavia through our network, and with our partners we reach all of Europe. In 2022, our net tonne kilometrage totalled 11.4 billion.
We are competent. We dare. We care. We deliver.
Our business concept
We develop and deliver efficient and sustainable rail logistics with Scandinavia as our home market.
World-class rail logistics.
We always take our environment into consideration and seek to promote a well-functioning society and Swedish industry. Our operations comprise a safe and attractive workplace, and we welcome and maintain an open and honest dialog with our stakeholders.
Low environmental impact
We offer our customers climate-smart logistics solutions based on electric trains. Trains are very energy-efficient and, in combination with the purchase of 100% renewable electricity, we can deliver large-scale transportation with high environmental performance. Electric trains make up 98 percent of our tonne kilometrage, meaning the climate impact is next to zero. We work continuously to further improve our energy efficiency and reduce our environmental impact, for example through locomotives that are more energy-efficient, start-stop functions in diesel locomotives and education in eco-driving for our train drivers.
Green Cargo defines delivery punctuality to customers as “loaded wagons to customers within the appointed hour.” To achieve a high level of punctuality, we follow up on our train punctuality internally through systematic inspections and follow-up on preparing trains in time for departures and arrivals.
The sustainable undertakings in our offering lead to long-term customer relationships based on trust. The goal is to meet our owner’s financial requirements for sustainable long-term financial performance and to make our customers more competitive. We apply a broader perspective than merely a financial one to the control and leadership of our company. This ensures that sustainability permeates all of our operations.
