A present from Yilport Oslo

I am proud to not only operate the cranes at Yilport Oslo but also that I can represent and take part in events. For me its important to understand that my workplace doesn’t come for granted. The thought of that maybe my words, pictures, story can help in generating more activity at Yilport Oslo, is inspiring. I want to lift, place, and replace those containers!

Yilport have had the honor of hosting our guests from the shipping industry: Agility AS, Alf Andersen, Blue Water, Bring, Cosco Nordics, DB Schenker, DSV Air & Sea, Freja Transport, Greencarrier, Harald, Hevold, Håkull Shipping, KGH Customs, Leman Shipping, Maersk, MSC Norway, Nor Lines AS, Norsk Land, Universal and UPS Norway.

Please follow the story of the day below. And see for yourself the effort put down and the good mood of the port.

Had some time to capture the majestic cranes.

The stage itself was obviously a container 😉 We needed to have a dark room to get the right light for the prowerpoint. Why not use an empty container?

The guests are arriving. Eryn our general manager in the center in her usual enthusiastic mood. Pobably giving an explanation of something port related :)

She could inform that the port is in the future gonna go through changes.
By changes I mean making parts of the port automated. The first step is getting the gate automated so that the truck drivers are more independent and can enter the terminal by they’re own hands. This will have its advantages and challenges. In the long run we will all benefit. Even the customer at end.

She could also reveal that Yilport is making progress in the plan on serving the swedish export/import market. Bigger thoughts on improving the nordic infrastructure is also mentioned.

Eryn held a good presentation, explaining the development of Yilport Oslo.
Our current status is that we are having a positive production with an up going curve.
And off course we are experiencing challenges with new staff, technology, cultures and so on. But Rome wasn’t build in one day 🙂

Me from back in the “old” port in the cabin of crane #507.

Its important to remember history. In spite changes we all have to remember that it started somewhere. This is me in the beginning operating a STS crane. Off course I had to post a picture of me. I love my job
