Stay up to date with Cargorange, read the latest about our services, work and what’s happening within our organisation.
For some time now, we have been assisted by Marcos Pfeiffer on the German market. Marcos has extensive experience of the freight forwarding market in Germany and has also worked on location in Sweden. Marcos will be handling sales in Germany and will also be Cargorange’s official employee in Germany. With Marcos, we take another step towards our dream team and our first foreign signing is a fact. We welcome Marcos as a member of the orange team.
New acquisition and organisational changes
Cargorange has made another acquisition. Christian Östberg has been reunited with some of his former colleagues from his time at Eurotraffic and Freja. Christian has most recently worked at Ekbergs where he managed imports, and here too he will be working with the import side. Together with Christian (N) and Patrik we now have a hard-to-beat midfield trio who will be managing our imports at high tempo and with excellent quality levels.
We are also making some organisational changes. Marie will continue to be “steel manager” and make sure that all of our steel shipments are handled correctly, but she will also be working with Robert and Richard on our sales. Jonas has been our unofficial traffic manager for a while, but this will now become his official role and he will have responsibility for all traffic departments. Maria will be working with traffic issues in parallel and is the stand-in for our various departments. She will also be dealing with our HR issues.
Now it’s time to start yet another magical year in Cargorange’s history as we enter our 15th year!
Welcome, Christian, to the orange company.
Welcome Patrik and Richard!
Cargorange has once again acquired hungry talent. Shipping’s answer to Real Madrid is proud to announce that the new acquisition, Patrik Åström, is a bit of an all-rounder with high moral fibre and a fighting spirit. He will join the squad during the summer break and will make his debut in the autumn season.
Patrik has a solid background in both prestigious Landskrona Bois and ÄFF, and he will now finally get the chance to show off his talents at a real arena. Patrik will be coming from TX logistik, having worked as a traffic manager providing train solutions for trailer traffic. Patrick will be taking over from André and will be working in the Import Department along with Christian, Jonas and Marie. We wish Patrik a warm welcome!
We have also decided to employ Richard Fredlund, as a salesman. Richard comes from the hotel industry and has been selling products to hotels throughout Scandinavia for several years. Richard starts on 1 June and will be selling our transport services at the same time as he will be selling for our sister company, Cargorange Hotel Service Solution.
Changes at Cargorange
A few more changes are about to take place in the line up at Cargorange. André has taken the decision to focus wholeheartedly on football. He has been offered a position at the Eskilsminne If Office, where he has been tasked to develop the club. André has a great passion for football and this club, and we can only wish him the best of luck there. We feel that André has developed into a good player here, a team player who has assumed his responsibilities and we are confident that he will come out fighting in his new assignments.
Maria will be moving over to imports, where she previously served as an additional resource, she is now assuming more responsibilities in this department. Marie and Christian are the main players in the import department, and Marie will be assuming greater responsibilities and not just directing our steel shipments. Robert will be attacking from the crossover department, and will be working a little closer with Janne and Uffe.
AutoPASS for Belgium
From 1 April, Belgium will be introducing a requirement for an AutoPASS or a so-called OBU (On-Board-Unit). This is a sort of tag, which records a vehicle’s movements on toll roads in the country. There has previously been collaboration with Sweden, Denmark and the Benelux countries, but Belgium no longer wants to participate in this collaboration. This will result in increased costs and it is something that will affect all haulage with a total weight exceeding 3.5 tonnes. From 1 April we will be charging a “MAUT/TOLLROAD” supplement for transport services affected in order to cover our haulage companies’ expenses.
