Swedish forwarders merge

Dacotrans Sweden, the Swedish member of the FPS Group of independent forwarders, has merged with GH Transport and Key Logistics, creating a medium-sized freight forwarding and logistics business.

The three merged companies will now trade as Key Logistics, which will remain the FPS network agent for Sweden.

Dacotrans was launched in 1988, while GH Transport commenced operations in 1994, and Key Logistics was founded in 2005. All three companies had common ownership, and offered a comprehensive range of freight forwarding services including air, ocean LCL/FCL, and projects. These activities will carry over to the new company, which continues to operate from Gothenburg.

In charge of the new company is Stefan Hansson as CEO; he was formerly MD of Dacotrans. Says Hansson: “As a means to strengthen our organisation and further improve their competitiveness, we have decided to merge our three logistics businesses into a single unit that exploits economies of scale.”
