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.

Breakbulk shipments

Today the shipping industry is very focused on containers which sometimes makes it difficult to handle so called oversized cargo.

Within the company BJORA Group we are type of specialists for handling breakbulk which means exra long, wide or high cargo sometimes also having a heavy-weight also.

The pictures shows a special loading we did for one of our customers in the beginning of February 2017.

Cargo is to sail to China and is quite sensitive even if commodity is steel plates.

Togeher with the carrier BJORA worked up a plan to handle and ship and it is extra fun to see the interest shown for this load among the carrier and shipper.

After a number of hours all was loaded safe and without remarks and the vessel could sail as scheduled.

The shipments also included a number of extra wide flatrack containers which is shown a little bit on last picture.

BJORA Group had on this vessel a bit over 160 teu’s shipped.

We are a young company, but we have the knowledge and willingness to work up plans with our customer to effectivly handle their cargo to make sure that Swedish export goods is delivered safe and without remarks and also to the right price.

Welcome to try us out………….we are here to serve.

New Entrance!

An early Saturday morning in February 2017 it was finally time to do something about our entrance.

During the years and due to the location of our warehouse (Götaälvdalen in Gothenburg) our road in to our warehouse has been partly demolished by all heavy traffic.

However a new year and new investments, to make sure that our customers cargo arrive here in proper way and that our vendors delivering goods to us are happy with our facility.

The result turned out nicely and after a number of hours a new road was crated.

Welcome to Borlinds now we are even more proud then Before.
