Bollore Logistics has expanded its presence in the Scandinavian market by acquiring a majority stake in Danish freight forwarder, Global Solutions.
The Danish company, which has offices in Vejle and Copenhagen Airport, started operations in 2006 and offers airfreight, ocean freight and road/distribution/courier services, particularly on the Europe-Asia axis.
Bollore says the transaction will expand its network in Europe and the company’s global end-to-end offering in the Scandinavian market.
Bollore Logistics chief executive officer for Europe, Henri Le Gouis says: “This new location will enable us to better serve our key account customers in Denmark and more generally in Scandinavia.
“We will support Danish companies in their international development and logistics projects, particularly in Africa, the continent of the future with strong market opportunities, where we operate as the first integrated logistics network.”
CEO for Northern Europe, David Smith says: “We are also aiming to strengthen our range of solutions and services for the Aid & Relief sector, which is strongly represented in Denmark.”
Global Solutions founder and managing director, Thomas Toubro says he is: “Satisfied and honoured to be now part of the big Bolloré family Group. I am very confident for the future, and believe in our ability to elevate Bolloré Logistics to the rank of the leading transport and logistics operators in Scandinavia.”
