Björk.Eklund Group Renamed Greencarrier AB

press release
Wednesday, February 01, 2012
Following the renaming of the Björk.Eklund Group to Greencarrier AB, its founders Stefan Björk (left) and Björn Eklund (right), will continue to hold the positions of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer respectively.

The Björk.Eklund Group is changing its name to Greencarrier AB with effect from 1 February 2012.

 

Previously the Greencarrier name had only been used by companies that formed part of Greencarrier Freight Services, the division of the Björk.Eklund Group offering customised logistics and transport solutions worldwide. Now the majority of Group companies not currently branded Greencarrier will also change their names to reflect their membership of the Greencarrier Group. This includes the Greenship/Loadmasters  liner agency division that represents Evergreen Line in several markets within the Nordic/Baltic region. Only the Scandinavian Shipping & Logistics division will maintain a separate identity.

 

According to Björn Eklund, CEO of the newly renamed Greencarrier AB, the Björk.Eklund Group has grown continuously over the last few years and today has approximately 650 employees working under several brands in ten different markets including China. He explains that the decision to consolidate the company’s brands under one name will boost the global profile of its various activities and reflect the Group’s commitment to provide its customers with environmentally sustainable transport solutions: “By minimising the number of company names, our aim is to communicate even more clearly as well as to facilitate business for our customers, partners and future employees.

 

“From an organisational and practical perspective, these changes will simply mean that there will be a new company name on our doors, invoices, business cards and stationery. Our phone numbers, contact persons and corporate registration numbers will remain the same. New e-mail addresses will be used, although the old ones will continue to work for a while longer. From now on, our website will be www.greencarrier.com.”
