Launch for Samskip Logistics

Samskip has launched Samskip Logistics bringing together all of its dry and reefer forwarding activities under a single business unit, including Samskip Icepak Logistics and forwarding services previously operated through country organisations branded under Samskip.

FrigoCare, the cold storage and terminal business, has also been brought under Samskip Logistics management, while maintaining separate branding. Samskip’s participation in Silver Sea and Silver Green has also been placed under the management of Samskip Logistics.

Ásbjörn Gíslason, CEO of Samskip Logistics, said: “We see these changes as a prelude announcing our intention to grow the global logistics solutions offered by Samskip further, both through organic growth and via strategic acquisitions. We look forward to developing our services as opportunities for growth present themselves.”

Samskip offers transport and related services by land, sea, rail and air and has a turnover of some €560m. It is headquartered in the Netherlands but was originally founded in Iceland in 1990.
