Gothenburg, the gate to the west……and rest of the world

In order to always service our customers with excellence we have during the fall searched the market to find alternatives to make our products involving rail-services in to our warehouse better.

Therefore we are proud to announce that we have found a trustworthy and future secure partner in ProTrain who from 2017-11-27 will be our partner in exchanging all our railcars in and out from our yard.

With this change we are sure that we have done something that will make our product better and more reliable for the future.

Welcome to join us and preferably use our rail-service.

Summer is over…

Summer is over, fall is here and the weather goes back and forth, one day sun, next day rain. This is the common Swedish seasons that we see. However in our group of companies we do still have what we refer to us high-pressure, our yard and books are full with bookings and challenges and our customers gives us more and more trust. After a summer with bad situations in our port and where we still been able to perform on highest level and scored record after record in handling we now see that the cargo returns to our area even more and we are more buzy then ever.

We are happy that our customers have good faith in our Group of companies and entitle us to develop our handling, shipping and skills to find new ways of handling and shipping the cargo to various destinations.

Business meeting in China

Dear reader,

September 2017, business takes us to Asia, (China) and the multi million cities of Shanghai, Ningbo, Kunshan and more.

Realizing that our relatively young company already established ourselves on many markets this trip was needed for us to take the next step.

Together with our agent in China and Asia we during the week 38 meet several partners and customers, prepared a lot of new challenges for our two companies to deal with in the future.

Being a westerner born and raised in Sweden and Scandinavia it is always challenging to travel in a part of the world where 75 % of the population does not speak English but with a smile on the lips it always pencils out to understanding.

Over 1000 km on Chinese roads and many hours behind the wheel we get back to Shanghai by Friday this week, ready to catch a flight back home to Sweden and ready to deal with new goals for our company group.

Travelling means meeting new people, learning more of different cultures and to understand not only local needs but also to understand that we are all a part of a Global World revolving faster and faster in our lives.

Freight Forwarding is a great occupation……..

August 2017

Dear customer and reader,

Late in the summer of 2017, August.

This years weather has not really enjoyed us with nice summer days or warm evening and nights.

However typing this in the middle of the month we still have the possibility of warm late summer days and great evenings so keep all fingers crossed for that.

We within the BJORA / Borlind Group have had a summer we shall remember.

A lot of challenges due to the awful situation in our port but also thanks to our dear customers trust in us and our capability to think outside the box.

Huge volumes have been handled and for such we are grateful to you all.

We also take our chances in proceeding with the facelift of Borlind’s office and of course we do our weekly cleaning of our sheds and yard.

What we wish to have said with this is, we are a service company, we are ready to act on your demands.

We are what people refer to as a ONE STOP SHOP.

Enjoy the pictures and as a last challenge for you, study the last picture, it is a short and sweet dictionary of our special language here in Gothenburg on the Swedish BEST-COAST.

Summer times part 2

As said this summer is an awkward story, due to the troubles in our port a lot of cargo is delayed and in some cases sent to other ports.

We need to use various methods for getting the cargo from other ports then to Gothenburg and in to our own warehouse for discharge.

This all means that from week to week we have extreme amounts of cargo arriving at same time and under high time pressure to get unloaded and delivered.

So far all arrangements has been solved in proper ways but basically all solved under extra ordinary handling.

Also the weather in our area has been awkward this year, sun and rain and low temperatures, not like the summers we are used to.

Still however we do get some very nice evenings which really gives us great sunsets and that in combination to successful work gives you a good feeling by the end of the days.

Summer times!

Normally the summer-time is more quite then other parts of the year.

This normally gives us a fair chance to do some maintenance of our facility.

This year due to all the strike situations and other negative things in our industry we are covered with work which by all means is nice and good but like reported before some maintenance is still needed.

2017 in the evenings is the time when we can perform this in order not to stress the issues further.

The pictures shows some more work performed on our entrance to our yard and with the now extra work performed on our driveway we hope and trust that the surface will be good. On top we put some cold asphalt to make it stable.

It is needed as presently we have about 100 vehicles per day entering our driveway to pic-up or delivery goods for our customers.

It is a great development for us and a big thank you to all our customers that gives us the opportunity and your trust to letting us handled the cargo is for sure in order.

The other pictures shows a good view on how our yard looks daily despite it is summer.

Just great.

Welcome to challenge us we are ready for it.
