    Leave a Comment
    Nordicon´s customer portal My Nordicon is a highly valued everyday tool for our clients.

    Over the years, we have made some updates, but now we thought it was time for a total remake. We have now developed a customer portal that we consider to be an upgrade several levels from before. In addition to highlighting all our best tools, we have given the portal a more modern layout that we hope you find fresh and bold, and of course, several new functions are added.

    Here is a selection of My Nordicon’s new and very smart tools that can help you in your daily work:

    Quick Quote – If you are in a hurry and want a quote based on weight and volume, you can now make a calculation directly on the landing page. Our quick quote will provide you with rates for all ports in Nordicon tariff, as well as Inland transport if they are provided in your country.

    Your calculation is generated directly and in step 2 you can choose to refine your calculation with measurements of the goods. A great shortcut that minimizes your clicks!

    My Quotes – Trouble finding that calculation you did the other day?

    You can now save your calculations directly in the portal and find them under My Quotes. The tool also shows the quotes you received from us at Nordicon via mail, so-called Spot Quotes. From here you can choose to export your calculation to Excel or book your shipment directly with just a few clicks, so very smart!

    My bookings – When you want an overview of all your bookings with Nordicon.

    This tool will give you an overview of all your company’s bookings placed with Nordicon.

  8. 20 years of consolidation and fun together!

    Leave a Comment

    Nordicon is celebrating its 20th anniversary

    It’s amazing how time flies when you’re having fun! Hard to understand that it has been 20 years since we at Nordicon opened our doors to the Nordic market and the world. More specifically, it was on Monday 11 February 2002, that five brave people in Gothenburg started what today is Nordicon. In April of the same year, Nordicon opened offices in both Finland and Norway. In Denmark, operations were started in May 2004.

    Founders Peter Mike and Linus Ahlm getting down to business!
    The journey began in a warehouse

    Nordicon’s journey began in a warehouse near the Port of Gothenburg with an office and terminal in one. This gave a strength right from the start by being close to the cargo and being able to give our customers first-hand information, whether the cargo was being imported or shipped out into the world. After a tough first year, both volume and profitability increased in the years that followed. The years 2003 and 2004 were turbulent times in the market but with a lot of hard work and a bit of luck, Nordicon came to be the leading neutral consolidator in the Nordics.

    Since then, Nordicon has steadily grown over the following 19 years and kept our position as the market leader in the region, with four well-established offices in the Nordics, and two own terminals in Gothenburg, together we are now over 100 employees. In addition to the core business of neutral ocean consolidation, we are the market leader in rail consolidation to/from China with our own block trains. A development that we are extremely proud of!

    What made this success possible?

    If not for the insatiable drive and courage of the founders to risk everything, the staff throughout the ages have always been the core of our business. Our amazing team has literally put up with thick and thin. They deserve all the recognition because it is their performance that shaped Nordicon’s success.

    Not to forget, the foundation of consolidation, is the tremendous support we have received from our loyal customers all these years. We would be nothing without you, thank you so much!

    2022 – a year of celebration!

    Today in 2022, Nordicon is part of ECU Worldwide, one of the world’s strongest consolidators. A strategic decision that has given us new opportunities to continue developing our business. The partnership with ECU Worldwide offers excellent opportunities and improvements for our customers in the future.

    We have chosen to celebrate Nordicon’s 20-year anniversary throughout 2022 in several different ways. Promotions, competitions, and some forgotten treasures from the photo archive over the years will be published in each country.

    But most important will have to be our #Nordicon20 parties! First off is Nordicon Sweden which will sponsor Shippis in Gothenburg on 1 September. An evening that is guaranteed to go down in history!

    We are grateful and very happy to be celebrating 20 years of consolidation and fun together!

  9. Nordicon launches a new Sea-Rail service from China to the Nordic region!

    Leave a Comment
    New Sea-Rail service from China to the Nordic region!

    Under the current circumstances, we at Nordicon are working hard to find new solutions for our clients in the Nordics. Today we launch a new and unique sea/rail service from Yantian in China, via Greece and Piraeus to the Nordics.

    Why Yantian & Piraeus?

    As the last port in China, Yantian is naturally the best location for our consolidations, as well as the fact that Piraeus is the first European stop for ocean vessels. This choice of routing gives us the shortest possible transit time.
     
    We offer pick-up from suppliers all over China to our new hub in Yantian. From Piraeus, we collaborate with established rail operators who offer well-functioning connections to the Nordic countries.

    The first departure

    The first departure from Yantian is planned for 7/4 with a transit of only 30-33 days to the Nordic region!

    We accept both LCL and FCL on this departure. Rates and schedules can be found in My Nordicon.

    Contact your local Nordicon office and place your booking on this new service today!

  10. New rail connection via the Caspian Sea!

    Leave a Comment

    Nordicon Rail Service launches a new rail service from China to the Nordic region, via the southern corridor and the Caspian Sea!

    With the current situation in Ukraine, the supply chain between China and Europe has received new challenges. Nordicon is working hard to find new solutions for our clients in the Nordics.

    To avoid transiting goods via Russia, we now have the possibility to arrange rail transport on the southern corridor via the Caspian Sea. Together with our partners, we can offer space on the first departure from China for this new rail service!

    Departure from Xian is planned for 31/3 with a transit of approx. 35-39 days to the Nordic region.

    We accept both LCL and FCL on this departure with limited space – so, first come, first served!
