Dear All 5 SLN Members,
Blue Ocean of Bangladesh became a member of 5SLN  in the year 2015 and have got 19 Endorsements as of today.  We are very much interested to establish business relation with other 5 SLN member where we have minimum scope.  But to tell you frankly we are not quite happy with our achievement.  In fact we are looking forward to establish more and more business with our network members.
“Blue Ocean” is a medium size Freight Forwarding Company working in this field from the year 2002.  At present we have good understanding with major Shipping/Air Lines who are operating their service from Bangladesh.  Most of our client are working with us since last decade and they are very much happy with us.  As a Freight Forwarder we have very good reputation in our local market.
From our end we are capable enough to handle all kind of shipment from/to Bangladesh.  We have our own office in Dhaka and Chittagong and also have long experienced work force.

For your kind consideration I’m attaching herewith our company short profile or you can also visit our webpage to know more about Blue Ocean.

If any of you have any inquiry or have any shipment headed to Bangladesh you can surely remember us.
Thanks and again sorry for the inconveniences.

Land Transport Association paralyzes activities for an indefinite period!
SIF GROUP informs that, yesterday, the Land Transport Association declared a national strike for indefinite time.
The Port of Montevideo will be affected in their operations, and probably also be affect the international transport.


Submitted on February 24, 2017 by Jordi Baez of Newblock in Spain

Dear fellow partners:

After several meetings among Unions and the Infrastructures Ministry in Spain, a strike has been finally called in all Spanish ports, as of 6th March.  If this strike is not called off, it will distort all handling operations, vessel calls and sailings.  We expect serious delays, call cancellations and backlogs.

A 2014 E.U. Directive is now mandatory and the Spanish Government has just signed the bill today; thus we do not expect changes in the Unions position. Please feel free to contact us for updated information.
