After a strategic review of Nordic road business Norfolkline decided to sell the activities trading from Norway and Sweden to Germany, Switzerland and France to DSV with effect from 1st July 2009.
Commenting on the sale Norfolkline Logistics Managing Director Eddie Green said “The activity is a relatively small part of Norfolkline Logistics and we believe the activities will be better positioned to serve the market when merged with the DSV business in these corridors and wish DSV every success.”
Jan Skov, Director Intermodal Services, Norfolkline adds “Norfolkline will continue to develop its remaining intermodal, trailer, and logistics services in the Nordic countries and throughout Europe.”
Norfolkline Logistics has offices in 13 European countries and provides a variety of logistics services to a large number of blue chip manufacturers and retailers.
This sale to DSV is unrelated to the transaction involving Norfolkline announced by A.P. Møller-Mærsk A/S on 30 April.
