Boliden has decided to extend its agreement with Green Cargo, which means that the Aitik shuttle and Copper shuttle will continue to be operated by Green Cargo.

“Boliden considers us a reliable partner, which is why they extended the agreement,” explains Hans Olof Klaus, sales representative at Green Cargo for Steel and Chemical transports.

The agreement that Boliden extended encompasses two single-commodity trains, the Aitik shuttle and Copper shuttle. Aitik shuttle transports copper concentrates from the Aitik mine in Gällivare to the Rönnskärs plant in Skelleftehamn. The finished copper cathode is transported by the Copper shuttle from Rönnskär to Helsingborg, where it is shipped onward to various end-customers.

The year-round shuttles run seven days a week, including on major public holidays, with high quality, reliability and stability traffic. This has generated a strong customer relationship giving Green Cargo the opportunity to increase volumes.

“Naturally, we are very pleased to have secured an extension to our agreement with Boliden. This is confirmation that we excel at what we do. Our high delivery reliability and focus on quality lays the foundation for customer satisfaction,” explains Hans Olof Klaus.
