Avatar Logistics cordially invites you for a breakfast meeting

We are looking forward to inform you on how inland waterways and high-tech barges - the waterway's "mega trucks" - can contribute to smart reginal logistics solutions, sustainable urban development and increased transport-efficiency by less environmental impact at the same time.

Speakers:

  •  Mats Björkryd, CEO Sand & Grus AB Jehander
  • Johan Wallén, Marketing and Sales Manager Ports of Stockholm
  • Amanda Baumgartner, freight strategist, Stockholm City
  • Johan Lantz, CEO Avatar Logistics AB and others

Barge traffic is an EU domestic traffic type that creates great social, environmental and climate benefits in city and regional logistics. Barges operate at European rivers, canals and urban waterways and easily substitute a lot of truck loads. Heavy traffic by trucks can especially be moved from heavily loaded roads to parallel waterways.

Construction materials, containers or fuel cargo do not always have to be transported by truck. Inland waterways offer free and reliable capacity without congestions. Modern, custom-built barges provide safe and alternative logistics solutions on these waterways.

Blue is the new green!

JEHANDER 1 is a barge, owned by Avatar Logistics AB. It is a fantastic example on how Sand & Grus AB Jehander has for years used the waterway between gravel pits in Lake Mälaren and the Group's concrete factories in the city. Each year, 20,000 trucks load take the waterway instead of the road. The handling is completely "waterborne". One of the quay facilities is Hammarby quay 10, where every Friday she unloads ballast to the nearby Concrete Industry.
