Gothenburg is Sweden’s second-largest city and the fifth largest in the Nordic countries. The city has a population of about 580,000 and circa 1 million inhabitants in the metropolitan area. Located on the west coast of Sweden and in the center of Scandinavia, Gothenburg is part of a North Sea axis with the Öresund region of Copenhagen, Denmark, and Malmö, Sweden, to the south and the metropolitan area of Oslo, Norway, to the north. This key position has enabled Gothenburg to increase its industrial importance continuously since the 16th century. There are two important logistics submarkets in the Gothenburg region, the harbor and Boras area, which is located farther inland with Landvetter Airport in between.
