After these challenging and unprecedented times, the whole platform of Cyclife is pleased to announce that Cyclife in the UK resumes shipments of customers’ metallic waste to Cyclife located in Sweden. The shipment arrived in Sweden on 29 June 2020 having left the UK just a few days earlier. The route has been operating efficiently for more than a decade and helps provide the best environmental solution for the UK’s nuclear industry. “The route guarantees an efficient and safe service for customers on the UK market” commented Henrik Modéer, Director, Cyclife Sweden.
