DFDS has entered into an agreement to acquire cold chain specialist HSF Logistics Group.
The acquisition of HSF Logistics strengthens DFDS’ customer offering to a wide range of food producers and will allow for new growth opportunities, adding freight volumes to the ferry route network.
The acquisition is still subject to EU regulatory approval which is expected within 3 months, however, the two companies will begin planning the integration already now while continuing their daily business operations.
Once acquisition is closed, HSF logistics will be integrated into the Logistics Business Unit within DFDS.
Torben Carlsen, CEO of DFDS said: “I am very excited about the acquisition of HSF Logistics Group as it significantly expands our customer offering to a wide range of food producers. It also opens the door for new growth opportunities and adds freight volumes to our ferry route network.”
