Conqueror Stockholm to establish terminal operations at Norvik Port in Stockholm

Euroglobe’s new establishment at Sweden’s newest freight port will create entirely new opportunities for handling export goods and goods for multimodal transport

Euroglobe Shipping AB, Conqueror member in Stockholm, Sweden, will shortly establish terminal operations, including bonded warehouse facilities at Stockholm Norvik Port. To this end, Euroglobe Shipping – which has a wide experience in logistics and forwarding since its foundation in 1970 – has leased an area of 6500 sq. m from Ports of Stockholm that will be used to load, unload and store goods. A terminal building will also be constructed that will connect to the container terminal operated by Hutchinson Ports Sweden.

As Johan Wallén, Director of Sales and Marketing at Ports of Stockholm, states, “The establishment of Euroglobe at Norvik Port will provide completely new possibilities to transfer goods between the different types of transport operating services to and from Stockholm Norvik Port, and we are very pleased to be able to develop our collaboration with Euroglobe.”

Euroglobe has already been offering the entire import and export chain to their clients at Frihamnen Port in Stockholm since 2005. However, the establishment of this new terminal will provide completely new possibilities to handle export goods, as the volumes can be stored and loaded into containers for onward transportation out into the world.

Javier Sangüesa, the Sales Manager of Euroglobe, comments, “It feels good to be in at the start of Stockholm Norvik Port and to be able to offer the same good service that we have been able to provide at Frihamnen Port. Additionally, with this new opportunity, we will be able to face the Swedish export industry’s demand for an excess of empty containers which can be handled in Stockholm. We are very proud to be involved and to be able to develop logistics in the greater Stockholm region, together with Ports of Stockholm and Hutchison Ports.”

Congratulations to Euroglobe for commencing this important project and wishing them the very best for their future endeavours!

 

Conqueror Stockholm bags a high velocity project!

Euroglobe Shipping AB moves 234 motorcycles for an auction in Texas, USA

Euroglobe Shipping AB, Conqueror member in Stockholm, Sweden, hauls 234 veteran motorcycles of high value along with some one of a kind MCS from Stockholm, Sweden, to Long Beach, USA. The value of this cargo has been estimated at a whopping € 12.5 million.

For inland haul, they made use of trucks with liftgates and created cribs for loading the containers so as to ensure that the bikes arrive intact at their destination. “We arranged the pickup from a museum and transported them to our facilities where we did the inspection and evaluation of the cargo. Due to narrow streets and the fragile nature of the shipment, we had to make 34 trips, loading 7 motorcycles per turn,” says Marco Sangüesa from the Sales department of Euroglobe. 

Mr. Sangüesa further added, “The bikes were shipped to our warehouse in the port of Stockholm where we loaded them into containers. Packing and loading the motorbikes was a rather demanding and time-consuming task since no bike was like the other. Moreover, the items were extremely valuable and fragile and on top of that, we had to keep the customer’s deadline in account. Thanks to the dedication and team-work of my colleagues, the bikes made it to Long Beach unscratched and right on time!” 

Congratulations to Euroglobe Shipping for perfectly executing this challenging project!
