BJORA Borlind AB becomes Traffic Tech Nordics AB

In 2022 we had an exiting change within organization. In April we merged our two organizations, BJORA Group AB and Borlind Bersén & Co into one and became BJORA Borlind AB. Following this, we were acquired by the Canadian company Traffic Tech Inc. in May as a part of their establishment in Europe, a journey that has just begun. Today, we have offices in five countries, and more on their way! It is an exciting journey that we have ahead of us, and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Since May 2022 we have taken small steps towards a full integration, such as changing email addresses, business system, and logo.
Our address, telephone numbers, person of contact and organisationnumber will remain the same.

We are attaching a contact list where we have collected all contact information. Last Wednesday we took the last step of the integration – the name change. Thus, from 2023-11-01 we are now Traffic Tech Nordics AB.
Do not worry, it is business as usual! We are the same group of employees who are here to assist you with your transport needs, from big to small. Our service and engagement remain unchanged, as we are now just a part of a larger organization who shares our vision and goals to give personal service in the best way possible.

If you have any queries, do not hesitate to get in touch!

The Future

Dear reader,

 

New management but business as usual…………and aim for the future.

 

After 45 years in the Forwarding Industry and various leading positions it is time for me and us to make some changes,

 Within our group of companies we a few years back in time decided to make a change in lead of the group.

 The magical date was set to be April 01-2022.

From this day and forward Mrs Ida Grev will commence and take over the responsibilities as Managing Director of BJORA Group AB, and to lead the group into the future. She together with her newly established management team consisting of Mrs Anna Lundgren in the position as Operations Manager and Mr Erik Karlsson as Director Finances and Administration is now to be seen as the future of the group.

 

Mr Johan Bjorklund will remain in the group as Senior Advisor for a few more years, assisting the new management team, based on his experience over the past 4,5 decades.

 Of course we say well deserved and congratulations to Ida and her new team to the nominations.

In a world full of changes this is for sure the right move, to prepare for a very special and quite challenging future in an old team but with a new lead into the next coming decades by a younger generation. All the best wishes to the team.

And for you dear customer, for you and us it will be business as usual and by that even a little harder focus on the future and development of our abilities to serve our customers in a never changing world.

 

As always, you are most welcome to challenge us and rest a sure we are committed to service and solution findings.  

 

Another Year…

Well dear reader,

Almost another year passed and we are entering in to December 2021. In many ways it feels like it was yesterday we had cold temperatures and snow but a year passes quickly.

A year to remember as a year filled with challenges due to present global situation with lack of space and equipment in many trade-lanes. A year filled with inovative solutions for our customers were we in old fashion style went back to arrange conventional shipments instead of using containers for handling huge volumes of cargo.

This year we have been asked to perform on all modes of transport by using, air, ocean both as container and conventional shipments as well as ground transportations by truck and rail. A better sum up will follow towards the end of the year but it’s been a great year despite global pandemics and what not but the guts feeling is that we are sailing towards better times and a healthier enviroment.

So dear reader please enjoy some of the pics showing various challenges but also some pics showing where we are presently moving closer to Christmas and again a New Year.

I am certain the New Year will also hold a lot of challenges but our team is ready to take them on one by one to make our growth good by satisfying our customers various needs.

Welcome to our group and we will appreciate having you as a customer and partner also in the future.
Ps, we also took the liberty to include some words we use here at the front-side of Sweden namely Gothenburg, enjoy….

Its Time For Global Project

Its Time For Global Project

Dear reader,

It is time again to handle global projects.
This time it is shipments being manufactured in Serbia, shipped out of Croatia and delivered in Usa. All for a Swedish customer.

A lot of planning is behind this load and towards medio August 2021 it was time to start all action.

Heaviest pcs is about 50 tons and longest length is about 28 meters with glaswall-sidings.
We are of course proud to state that after all planning and arrangements it all went 100% as planned.

Now shipment is loaded and on it’s way so within a few weeks from now the ship will arrive it’s destination and our partners are ready to effect import customs clearance and assist with local arrangements for our customer. It is truly great to be given trust to perform and again it is being proven that a local forwarder in Sweden can get global action involving several countries and people to meet the demands that a shipment of this dignity demands.

BJORA Group is here to assist and our statements are, no job is to big. Give us a try and you will be surprised what we can effect not only in Sweden but also on the global platform.

Welcome to BJORA Group AB

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…..

Warehouse

Warehouse

August 21-2020.

Dear reader,
Presently we do have extreme volumes to handle in our own warehouse which we are quite happy about.
In order to provide service to all our customers we are happy to announce that with assistance of our partners like Mattssons we can still increase volumes a bit and also top of what we call overloads.
In this case a 40′ container containing dry-food-stuff.

We brought the container to their facility after customs clearance, unloaded the container and re-packed 22 sea-pallets to ordinary EU-pallets, loaded same on a trailer and performed delivery to the end user.
Logistics at it’s perfection.
Thanks to all involved for a well performed work in the line of duty to our customers.

We are here for you…………………

Crawfishparty

Crawfishparty

August 21-2020.

Tradition in Sweden during the months of August is to host a Crawfish-party, so also this year and the entire crew of BJORA / Borlind enjoyed each others company during the evening.

A lot of songs and also some good snapses and bear was taken together with this very, very Swedish tradition.

Needless to say but needs to be said, also as the tradition demands a lot of singing was done and to all of us who attended our songs could really improve or we could at least try to sing the same song…………hahaha.

This is just how it should be, a joyful evening with good food and a lot of laughs in the name of good and hardworking colleges.

The team is normally only work together but our aim is also have fun so an evening like this a few times every year helps out to keep the team-efforts even harder and closer.

To you ut there who has not tried us out yet, feel warm welcome to challenge us. We are ready for it.

However you do not need to hear us sing, that might spoil the trust………….hahaha.

Team BJORA / Borlind

Team BJORA / Borlind

Team BJORA / Borlind have own rail-connection straight into to our own backyard.

This is one of the reasons we are given this opportunity.

One of our customers do import from Denmark and Germany to Sweden.
Commodity is Bricks on pallets.

A study together with our customer has resulted in a scenario were we are given the opportunity to start sending their products on rail instead of by trailer.

This is of course not only a long term reduction of costs it is also a very, very environmental save for us all.

The pictures taken is from Denmark when we during week 20 in 2020 travelled to the manufacturer to oversee the loading on trailer and to follow same to the port in Kolding for re-loading on railcar with destination BJORA / Borlind in Gothenburg.

The railcar can load 64 metric tons and we maximized the loading to 81 pallets (each 790 kg) so in total we filled the wagon with 63 990 kg.

As close as ever possible to maximation of the unit.

The intention is to continue this newly opened service and to move many, many wagons for this customer and in a day or two the wagon will arrive for unloading by us and distribution to building site in Gothenburg.

This is how we work together with our customers,

Listen to their requests, investigating possibilities, presenting solutions and last but not least we make sure that what is promised also is delivered.

Thank you so much dear customer for letting us handle this and for the challenge to be a bit innovative for future forthcomings.

Enjoy the pics and story.
