Stikes Cancelled!

The announced strike in all main Swedish ports planned to commence today, 6th March, has in the very last minute been cancelled.

An agreement has been reached between the Swedish Dockworkers Union and the Ports of Sweden, and the details available so far confirm that both parties agree to cancel all hostile action and return to “business as usual”.

As ocean line carriers and truckers have planned for an all-out strike, some disturbances are still to be expected the coming days, but hopefully this will only have minor consequences and we will try our utmost to minimize the effects of this for our clients.

Containerized Dry Bulk Shipping

Containerize instead of trucking! 

Containerizing your dry bulk cargo shipments and sending by short sea container vessel and/or barge combinations has many benefits over traditional trucking solutions. Conveyor belts for loading and tipping chassis at destination allows for a very smooth and speedy handling process. The need for an extra step of Big Bag loading can be eliminated, risks for damages to cargo and loading may be reduced, and most importantly transport costs can often be substantially reduced. So, give this method a try – you may be surprised!

With a broad network of European suppliers and partners, G-Solutions can provide our bulk clients with solutions from almost all main areas of large-scale dry bulk cargo production in Europe. Areas such as the Ruhr region in Germany and the ports of Bilbao and Gijon in Northern Spain are regions where we have particular presence, but we have options available for almost any request.

Swapping from traditional trucking alternatives to our short sea options on the European waterways will considerably lower your carbon emissions. Add to this the elimination of packaging material/Big Bag handling and disposal, and you will realize that by containerizing your bulk cargo you will be doing mother nature a favor.

G-Solutions offices closed 2nd November

Due to the All Saints public holiday this weekend the offices in Gothenburg and Märsta (Stockholm) will be closed from 13:00 on Friday 2nd November.

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.

G-Solutions offices closed for Midsummer

Due to the Midsummer public holiday G-Solutions’ offices in Gothenburg, Stockholm and Helsinki (Espoo) will be closed all day on the 22nd June.

Emergency Bunker Surcharge (EBS)

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.
