The celebration of the Chinese New Year begins! China has closed down because everyone is going home to meet relatives and friends, celebrating the Dog's year with fireworks. This holiday is celebrated in several countries around Asia so we will have a quiet period before everyone returns to work around February 21st.
We would like to mention the possibility of sending goods by train from China. The transit time is approximately 20 days to Sweden. Give us a call and we'll tell you more.

Dear all,


Shipping lines introduce a new cost, Fairway Due, which applies from January 1st. It seems as the shipping lines have agreed on approx. SEK 100 / teu. This is a local cost and is charged to Swedish customers for both CFR / FOB shipments.
For those who have LCL shipments, an Entry Fee will be added at the port of Gothenburg due to a new handling routine of empty containers. The inspection is now done in a special area, which means an additional stop for each delivered container. The cost is approx. SEK 10 / W / M.


We also like to remind you of the Chinese New Year which this year is between February 15th and 21st and as usual, China i closed during this periode.

The problems in Gothenburg Port continue, the APM Terminals are facing big delays. This is due to the extra high pressure in the port combined with a high sick-leave among the emplyees. Unfortunately, there is no possibility of hiring extra personnel due to the blockade. The situation indicates that there may occur some delays. We will inform you as soon as we have any indications of late deliveries.
