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.

GREAT Thanks to the team.

Even Santa and his deer joined the show and presented some Christmas Gifts for each and everyone to enjoy.

Christmas is around the corner and a forwarders life is as always hectic but what else is new…..

We all enjoyed the lunch together today.

Special handling “Just In Time”

To handle Paper Products on export is a today a well known action for us freight forwarders. Some products are so sensetive that they can not barely take the weather conditions here in Scandinavia. Today we for one of our VIP customers handled just this type of cargo. Empty container arrived at our warehouse at 07.00 and the cargo arrived at 07.30…. A direct cross-docking was performed were we loaded the cargo straight from trailer to container, blocked and braced the cargo inside and at same time export customs clearence was performed and at 09.00 the container was on it’s way to port, ready to be shipped to global destinations. This is the life of a freight forwarder, always to work with focus on Just In Time and customer needs. Dear reader, BJORA is a local service provider but we always go the extra mile for keeping our customers and their customers happy not only in Sweden but also globally were our company is hooked up with the elite forwarders in each country. Welcome to join us and to see the diffrent in service.

Chalmer SeaLog Event 2016-11-23

International Forwarding anno 2016.
Upon special request from the University of Chalmers in Gothenburg BJORA Group AB was invited to give class to their edjucation called SeaLog.
We were also invited to participate in an evening mingel and chat for the students while looking for trainee possibilities during their second year in School.
In the eveing of November 23 we spent a few hours speaking to young people showing interest in our field of work and we find it very interesting that a small forwarder get such an attraction from the younger generation in our industry.
A lot of forwarders and also cariers participated in the event and it felt like the students were quite satisfied with what they learnt during the evening.
BJORA Group AB has stated that we would be interested in asisting further with the edjucation of the next generation Forwarders to come in Sweden.
Eventually we might be happy to welcome a few young students to a trainee seccion with our companies and the next step might be employment if it is the right person….. time will tell………

Nothing is impossible to handle or ship ?

Nothing is impossible to handle or ship ?
Well studying our various customers needs and finding solutions is a daily task for a forwarder and this is how we perform our work.
All cargo is to be handled with care, all shipments might be similar but by the end of each day they are diffrent.
The flexibility and knowhow of a forwarderwithin BJORA Group is that we need to perform from the top of our knowledge every day to find costsavings and trustworthy solutions.
The pictures shows a scope of diffrent loads we recently handled were we on our customers request not only did perform the loading, lashing in our own facility, we also did it at their own backyard.
That was of course only the local part, we also handled the shipment to final destination incl all extra services around it.
BJORA is a “ONE STOP SHOP”, despite being local in Gothenburg, we reach the globe thru our partners and agents.
No challange will ever be to big for us to handle, welcome and challange us. Team BJORA Group AB
