Bolloré Logistics beefs up its Nordic presence

Bolloré Logistics, ranking among the world’s top 10 in transport and logistics, has taken a significant leap forward in the Nordics with the acquisition of a majority stake in the Swedish company Global Freight Solutions AB and its Finnish affiliate. This now extends the present Bolloré Logistics network to 600 offices in 109 countries with 25,000 employees. This acquisition reinforces the company’s presence in Europe, especially in the Nordic markets. It was a strategic target to complement the regional network having previously established a structure in Norway which was subsequently joined by a similar investment in Denmark.


Established in 2006, G-Solutions is headquartered in the maritime hub of Gothenburg, with additional offices in Stockholm and Helsinki, offering a comprehensive portfolio of services. As an export driven economy Sweden is an industrial powerhouse. Alongside Finland, the area matches perfectly many of Bolloré Logistics’ strategic industry verticals, such as mining, power, automotive, aeronautics and defence, telecom, hi tech, healthcare and retail.


Commenting on the news, Henri Le Gouis, CEO Europe of Bolloré Logistics, said: “I am delighted to strengthen our footprint in the region, this will allow greater depth and consistency to our commercial proximity with clients. As the deal neared completion, we have already been working together under a partnership arrangement. This already delivered many commercial opportunities and we are delighted now to formalise our shared future, such as coupling up with the company’s industrial projects division, and to offer Swedish exporters new logistics solutions boosting their performances into the African, Middle East and Asian markets. I know our clients and network colleagues will welcome this development.


Responding on behalf of G Solutions, Johan Moerth, Managing Director, added: “I am extremely positive about this development. We have grown rapidly and acquired a reputation for quality of service and accessibility to clients. I believe these values underpin our success and are perfectly matched to Bolloré Logistics’ culture. Now with access to the company’s systems, expertise and strategic carrier alliances I believe we will contribute very strongly to its growth in the region. In the challenging times of Covid-19 we are already extending Bolloré Logistics charter options and bespoke industry solutions across the full range of clients in our region. Whether it be China, the Americas or our unparalleled reach in Africa, we are seeing immediate synergies between our local client relationships and the power and scope of solutions that only a major player can provide.

Effect of the continued conflict at APM Terminals – Port of Gothenburg

Global Freight Solutions once again would like to make all of our customers and suppliers aware of the impact of the ongoing port conflict at APM Terminals. The long running dispute and the current Lock-Out, imposed by APM Terminals themselves, is now resulting in major challenges for all parties in the logistical chain.

Currently there is only a small amount of cargoes that are destined for- or exported via Gothenburg, which manage to be unloaded / loaded over the dock at APM Terminals Gothenburg.

The shipping companies have so far, with different strategies, tried to solve the situation, but we are now seeing the overall effect even in the other “nearby” ports of Varberg and Halmstad. These two ports have begun to protect their existing business by refusing for further calls. The same applies to Helsingborg, which is currently operating above capacity. The port of Helsingborg has now introduced a congestion surcharge. So far, Malmö has been able to gain a lot of West Coast loads and still looks to be the solution for several shipping companies, although it will definitely vary week by week.

We would also like to point out that with immediate effect several shipping companies have begun to charge a congestion surcharge for all cargoes entering / exiting across the west coast – i.e. cargo booked to Helsingborg, Halmstad, Varberg and Malmö – will also be subject to additional costs due to the critical situation that the dispute in Gothenburg has led to. The amount introduced is $ 100 / TEU. At the present time, we can not rule out that this could also hit the east coast load as it starts to be overworked in many ways.

With all of this in mind we implement force majeure, and we must again be clear that we are in no way in a position to absorb the extra costs that now arise at extremely short notice – whether it is congestion surcharges, higher pre-carriage/road transport costs, waiting times from haulers or ground/space and equipment rents.

The haulers will charge SEK450- from 19/6 per container to ensure that they still can provide acceptable service levels. This charge will be charged on your invoice for all transports that go through the port of Helsingborg without exception.

We hope for your understanding and when back in normal mode, this expense will be immediately removed.

Helsingborg Port has announced surcharges – with information about extra handling costs for both import / export cargo as below:

Import Containers: SEK 350.

As well as shorter free time for containers in port: 3 days free afterwards.

Import: SEK 160 / teu and day.                          

Export: SEK 60 / teu and day.

We apologise for the inconveniences caused by the current situation as it appears just now throughout Sweden but this has occurred outside of our control. We will do all we can to reduce the impact to you. We will continue with all our efforts to keep your cargo moving all the way to destination with as little delay and fewer additional costs costs as possible.

Alternatives For Containerized Cargo

During this current period of fully loaded vessels exporting full containers from Scandinavia and Europe to the Middle East and the Far East; G-Solutions, as always, offers alternative transport solutions through RoRo and Break-Bulk services.

Loading “container suitable” cargoes onto RoRo vessels (using MAFI/Cassette) or into Break-Bulk vessels can sometimes be a viable alternative to full containerized shipping services – where the arrival of cargoes at destination before the summer months is vital.

Where ocean based transport services are fully booked, airfreight transports can also be an alternative for smaller consignments when an important deadline at destination must be met. G-Solutions offers complete IATA Airfreight Services.
