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.
If you not yet tried our various services and flexibility we wish to welcome you to try out our service.
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 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.

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.

2 pcs bathrooms to Dubai.

2 pcs bathrooms to Dubai.

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.

Magical date for us all…

Magical date for us all…

Thursday evening 2020-01-16.

 

Magical date for us all, as we invested in time / money for an HLR = Heart-Lung-Resque education in our office.
The entire crew was present and we were given the possibility to practice eventual scenario’s like if a person is getting in to a cardiac arrest as well as as if a person simply can not bread by himself.

 

Two hours was invested and we was also shown how to use a Defibrillator if bad things occur in our area. The intention is to get our entire group of companies to a common education and awareness of how to act if worst comes to worst.

For you our customers, note not only cargo needs to be handled in a correct way, also human beings needs the correct treatment so now we are also educated for this.

 

This is how we work, as one unit and regardless of situation we always act together for making things as good as we ever can.

 

We are proud of this and the Certificate hanging on our wall is well proof of that we know what is expected from us.
