The new addition will increase weekly departures and open the terminal for wagonload traffic and semitrailers on wagons.

From December 2023, Green Cargo will have a new tariff point among its 300 places across Sweden. According to an agreement with timber manufacturer Fiskarhedens and logistics company Träfraktkontoret i Göteborg, the Malungsfors terminal will join the network of Green Cargo and its partners across Europe.

Fiskarhedens has, so far, been running one train a week with containers loaded with sawn timber for exports via the port of Gothenburg, with trains pulled by Green Cargo. This privately owned sawmill produces around 375,000 m3 of sawn timber, 90% of which goes to export. This is coordinated via logistics company Träfraktkontoret i Göteborg, which handles around 75,000 TEUs of forestry products for export. In the new arrangement, three trains a week are planned, with the timetable in place for up to five departures per week.

More frequent trains on the Västerdalsbanan aim to attract more companies to use the terminal, including those using single wagon shipments and shipments of trailers on rails. These trains will be added to around 400 trains  departing in the Green Cargo network daily. The Malungsfors terminal, situated around 200 km north of Karlstad, is also used for pulp wood loading by Mellanskog, which uses the terminal to load round wood for transport to pulp mills on the coast.
