About Go Bag Home

GoBagHome was started by me, Thor Østergaard in 2015.

I'm a host dad in the DIS Study Abroad program in Copenhagen. We have had students living in our house in Ny Hammersholt, Hillerød (north of Copenhagen) since 2014.

Our two students in the 2015 spring semester wanted to ship their bags home because they wanted to stay some more in Europe. I did my best to help them, and talked to a few shipping companies in Denmark. I was not able to help them before they left, but over the summer I managed to make a deal with DHL (DHL is part of the world's leading postal and logistics Group, Deutsche Post DHL Group) and I'm now able to give DIS students (and others) a good price on shipping bags to USA and the other way.

I'm an IT software developer/consultant with my own company (Scient Data). I get the quotes and prices from DHL's systems and will use DHL's bookingsystem for actual booking and tracking.
