Some words of remembrance about our friend and colleague Bosse (Bo) Norvinge International Van of the Year & International Pick-up Jury Awards member for Sweden.

Bosse Norvinge has sadly left us, passing away suddenly on 22 November. He was born 13 March, 1970 and started his career in the transport industry as a truck driver and later became an owner operator in 1996. Over that time he also wrote articles for various road transport magazines and in 2012 he became a full time freelance journalist. Bo was a long time and much appreciated contributor to Förlags AB Albinsson & Sjöberg with well-written, informed articles. His broad knowledge was also extended to features in Trailer, Klassiska Lastbilar, Trucking, Traktor and Nostalgia magazines. He also wrote for Svensk Åkeritidning.  In 2020, he was appointed the Swedish jury member International Van of the Year & International Pick-up Awards, representing Trailer magazine, one of the most influential commercial vehicle publications in Sweden and was enjoying his new role immensely.

Bo was most unassuming, quiet, pleasant and humble and a true friend to us all. Our thoughts go to his wife Catarina Norvinge, his mother Fukue Klarström, relatives and many, many friends and colleagues.  May he rest in peace.
