The story of Tinplates

The story of Tinplates

Earlier this winter/spring we stated that we got a mission for one of our customers, to arrange a part-chartered vessel out of Kaohsiung in Taiwan to Sweden with about 775 tons Tinplates.

The vessel loaded in Kaohsiung first week of March and arrived in Sweden (Gavle) end of April. Unloading of the products and dedicated truck’s to their plant to make sure our customer did not got a stop in their production.

All want well and both we and our customer was happy with the result.

The majority of the cargo was loaded on to railcars to do the last journey to Gothenburg and the interim storage we do have here at our bonded warehouse for them.

All in all 24 railcars were chartered and safely unloaded here from were the cargo now is feed daily to our customers production unit.

So, this is how it all works when synergies and efforts are put in to effect and that we do perform tailor-made solutions to all our customers demands and requests.

Life is good to be a forwarder…..

Hard Times…

Hard Times…

Dear reader,

Despite hard and tuff times presently, the life of a forwarder is always hard and tuff so in a way we are all used to it. In tuff times we take on new challenges to maintain our scope to always be there for our customers.

Like the past months were a number of new customers turned themselves to us to start using our services and as stated by them, “we strongly believe in your philosophy to act quick towards requests and always try to find solutions”.

These are all nice words and we are happy to know that our customers do trust, like what we do to develop.

The attached pics are taken on our backyard and some shows that despite present situation we are going towards spring and a little easier life hopefully.

To you dear reader, we are happy that you constantly visit our FB and WEB-pages and in particular right now when so many of you are working from home or just isolated yourself from the outside world. This gives you something to read and study.

 

Thanks for your continuously support and trust.

Stay safe………….from all of us.

Once again we were challenged to handle extreme dimensional cargo.

Weight 15 metric tons each and 8,60 x 3,26 x 3,75 meters (LxWxH).

Considering the free height in Sweden (4,50 meter) this cargo was forced to be picked-up by using a lowboy trailer and escorts to get it as close as possible to the port-gate. We brought the cargo to one of our partners where we discharged and reloaded the cargo on to flatrack containers.

The bathrooms modules were lashed down to the flats with about 200 tons pressure on each. While travelling last distance to port we were about 5,70 meter high.

Result ?
Well all well perform by all involved and the cargo is in place for being shipped out of Gothenburg by tomorrow.
Thank you to all involved and who made this work possible for us and our customer.

 

Another great challenge we performed by Team BJORA / Borlind and it’s partners.

To you dear reader, welcome with your challenges we promise to find solutions to your needs.

Business trip to Montreal in Canada

Business trip to Montreal in Canada

Week no 5 of 2020.

A short and sweet business trip to Montreal in Canada. We were invited to spend a week with our (since July 2019) new agent in the Americas. The beautiful city of Montreal offered us various weather with everything from cold temperatures like minus 17 C in the mornings to approx. plus 3 C and snowfall.

So many things were dealt with such as approx. 40 individual meetings with key-crew and management as well as a general presentation to abut 45 people about Sweden and Scandinavia.

Last but not least we offered them all a special treatment with

“Swedish Fika”.

One evening we also had the pleasure in attending a hockey game between the Canadians and the Capitals. Hockey night in Canada is a very special happening so we enjoyed to the full.

Like always time flies and after four days it was time to say goodbye to next time and to go on the plane to return to Sweden.

All impressions we got during our trip was indeed great and we can see that our agent has a great set up and is indeed one of the fastest growing transportation companies on the American continent.

Thanks to you all for entrusted us to be your agent in Scandinavia.
