Dachser strengthens European food logistic network


Dachser has acquired Frigoscandia as the global logistics company looks to further bolster its geographic coverage in Europe and the Nordics.

A full-service provider in temperature-controlled and frozen food logistics in the Nordic region, Frigoscandia is  headquartered in Helsingborg, Sweden.

“We are very proud to acquire Frigoscandia and take our long-standing strategic partnership to the next level,” said the CEO of Dachser, Burkhard Eling. “Our focus remains on growing organically and sustainably. In addition, this year we’ve strengthened our presence in key markets such as Benelux, Oceania, South Africa, Italy, and now the Nordics through targeted acquisitions.”

Frigoscandia has a workforce of 1,300 employees with 12 warehouses in Sweden and three in Norway. Upon completion of the transaction, Frigoscandia will be fully integrated into the Dachser Food Logistics Network.

“With this acquisition, our customers in the Nordics and in Europe will benefit even more from our high-quality distribution capacity,” said COO Road Logistics and Managing Director of Dachser Food Logistics, Alexander Tonn. “Our history has proven that both partners share a clear commitment to reliability and quality.

Frigoscandia’s CEO, Peter Haveneth, will continue to lead the company and said that becoming a member of the Dachser family would give the company the best prerequisites for further operational growth.
