Join us on the longest and most adventurous of the European sailing legs. Fifteen days of sailing, crossing the Bay of Biscay as we head south towards Lisbon and later the Mediterranean. A sail to cross off the bucket list!
Greencarrier AB - A sustainable logistics solution provider
SOIC is a fully owned subsidiary of Greencarrier Group, a family-owned company with over 40 years of history specializing in logistics solutions. Greencarrier Group comprises several businesses in the Nordic and Baltic countries and offers global logistics solutions with all modes of transport, focusing on knowledge, innovation and sustainable solutions.
A perfect match based on heritage and future
Greencarrier is based on the Swedish heritage of commerce and shipping and on the fact that they want to do sustainable business between people, companies and countries.
SOIC basically share common values on which Greencarrier base their operations on a daily basis. Without humour and joy, dedication and participation, neither Greencarrier nor SOIC would have come a long way. Being a value-driven company does not happen by producing some words that will symbolize what we believe in and what we stand for. Being a value-driven company is when everyone, regardless of function, knows how to act every day to live the values, culture and brand. You know the difference between doing a job and getting involved in your job, for real. That is why we often say that, had we not had our staff at Greencarrier, then we would not have existed. And that’s why thousands of amazing volunteers do wonders as they give of their time to the Swedish Ship. It’s so strong. And it is for real!
When we start our journey towards a sustainable future with commerce, shipping and logistics as our base, Svenska Ostindiska Companiet is simply our starting point. We are proud of our origins and we want to build on that in the future.
Greencarrier may “only” be 20 years, but our history goes much further back in time. That is why we want SOIC and the ship to become our natural symbol and platform to do so.

In September, Götheborg will sail to Lisbon, Portugal. It is the first time that the ship visits Portugal. Götheborg will be in Lisbon 5–8 September 2022 and will be moored at the central location of Cais Rocha Conde de Óbidos. The ship will be open to visitors during its stay. Welcome on board!
We have now been at the shipyard for a number of weeks in order to get ready for the Asia Expedition. We've had sunshine, rain and snowstorms during our time at Gotenius, but now it's time to head back to Pier 4 at Eriksberg in Gothenburg. Let us tell you all about it.
