Allt i Transport is merging with G-Moving

Allt i Transport & Spedition AB (AiT) is aquiring G-Moving, a part of G-Solutions (Global Freight Solutions AB) and STL Group in Gothenburg. The companies are merging because with their combined expertise, production capacity and client base, they form Sweden’s leading moving service company – now with the capacity to match even the most successful companies in the industry on an international level.

AiT began operations in 2003 and is now Sweden’s leading moving service provider in the public sector whilst being a major player in the private commercial market too. Some examples of AiT’s large, current clients include: Stockholm County Council, Uppsala Municipal Council and the Enforcement Authority.

G-Moving specializes in international moving and is part of G-Solutions (Global Freight Solutions AB) and STL Group. G-Solutions was established in Gothenburg in 2006 to provide freight forwarding and door-to-door delivery services. Over the years, G-Moving has worked with many large, international clients and is now the primary supplier for a number of multinational corporations as well as the majority of embassies.

AiT can see extensive and clear synergies with this deal. “This merger gives us everything we need to be able to match the most successful companies in the industry, including the international removals”, explains the MD of AiT Per Hansson. “G-Moving’s impressive experience in international moving, together with AiT’s huge production capacity, make us a comprehensive partnership. Our driving force is to facilitate our clients’ next steps by responsibly creating seamless transportation across Sweden and the World, eliminating burdensome administrative work and making sure that those who move with us are at home in their new destination. Now we look forward to being able to provide even better moving services, entirely in line with our driving force.”

“We see no reason to change what G-Moving does and creates now; rather, it will be ‘business as usual’ throughout this process.” G-Moving is expected to continue the success story it has enjoyed so far both in Sweden and beyond. Meanwhile, AiT wants to further develop and refine its services, both on the administrative and the product engineering side. Both parties are confident that this will be fullfilled by the acquisition of G-Moving.

“The deal will have positive effects for existing and new clients alike, in terms of long-term development and powerful consolidation”, explains the MD of G-Moving, Johan Moerth. “A complete range whilst maintaining quality and service, both locally and internationally.”

The combined operations will be brought together under the G-Moving name. In late autumn 2018, G-Solutions shareholders will also be offered shares in AiT in order to build a sustainable and long-term alliance. The business will initially have more than 5000 clients, spread across 3900 assignments per year and an annual turnover of approx. SEK 150 million.

Due to a general increase in oil bunker prices of approx. 16% during the first six months of 2018, most container shipping lines have recently enforced an EBS charge or plan to do so during the remainder of June or even during July. The quantum of EBS and geographic scope varies from carrier to carrier. However, the general range is USD50 – 60 per TEU and some Carriers are announcing a global surcharge.

For more information please don’t hesitate to contact Global Freight Solutions or your relevant carrier/agent directly.

Weather warnings across North Europe

G-Solutions would like to inform all it’s customers, partners and agents that the unusual weather faced in North Europe is playing havoc with some ports, ships and terminal services.

A number of facilities in Ireland and the UK have been closed yesterday afternoon / early this morning with no prospects of opening times being advised as yet. The Met Office in the UK issued an unprecedented red weather warning for Scotland indicating an immediate danger for life. The same red warning was issued by Met Eireann for Ireland from today pm, in force until at least Friday 15:00.

In Rotterdam and in Antwerp, productivity at some terminals is down to three moves per hour, caused by high winds and frozen lashing equipment.

Consequentially, some services will change from their pro-forma; delays and port/terminal omissions are likely.

Please ensure to keep eye on daily schedules for further information and contact Global Freight Solutions for updates in connection with any current shipments.
