On Wednesday 24 June, a fire broke out in a trailer at the Gothenburg Terminal in Sweden.
Björn Wånge, Managing Director, says: “The fire started at around 16.00 CET and quickly spread to adjacent trailers, in the end destroying a total of 18 trailers. Luckily, no persons were injured. The fire brigade was at site from 16.00-02.00, however they had the fire under full control when I left at around 23.00. “
“The cooperation between DFDS and APM Terminals was very good, and they all handled the fire with good discipline and according to the checklist and established routines. The management would like to extend a thank you to the involved colleagues for well done work in connection with the fire” says Björn.
“All customers and employees have been informed. Now we will start to remove trailers and clean the surfaces, but first I want to ensure that the insurance surveyors have the information they need. There will be no further investigation according to the police.”
