Logent already provides stevedoring services at Volvo's car terminal a the port of Gothenburg, a contract it has had since April 2011, including yard management and loading and unloading. Under a new two-year contract the Automotive Logistics subsidiary will now distribute vehicles to the greater Stockholm area, Mälardalen and northern Sweden with services extended to include train loading and the maintenance of the vehicles. Logent transports the cars via a network partnership of train operators and haulers.
"We are taking care of all customs handling of the export cars including document handling (CMR, certificates of origin etc) from both Torslanda in Sweden and Gent in Belgium," said Borgström, tasks also previously handled by Volvo Logistics.
The partnership with Volvo Car Corporation also entails logistics consultancy, staffing solutions, customs brokerage and state of the art IT-support.
