DFDS has acquired 100% of the share capital of Dutch logistics company Huisman Group as it looks to enhance its part-load offering.
Huisman Group provides part-load transport and contract logistics focused on time-critical freight between the UK and Republic of Ireland and continental Europe.
Operations include warehouses and cross-docking facilities in Wijchen, the Netherlands, and Corby, England, as well as a fleet of around 55 trailers and 50 trucks. The company has 104 employees and annual revenues of EUR €23 million (£19.3 million).
Niklas Andersson, executive vice-president and head of logistics division at DFDS, said: “Huisman Group is an excellent provider of part-load solutions between the Netherlands and the UK that complements our existing strong full-load business in these markets. We can now offer customers an even wider scope.”
