Eimskip has strengthened its position in worldwide logistics services by acquiring 75% of the freight forwarding company SHIP-LOG. The company was founded in 2003 and its headquarters are located in Aarhus, Denmark. The current management team will continue to own 25% of the shares in the company and will manage its operations.
SHIP-LOG focuses on serving import and export customers and has a strong international agency network in more than 120 countries which gives the company a global reach. The company has a strong foothold within the temperature controlled cargo in the food and pharmaceutical sector. The company’s annual revenue amounts to approximately EUR 17 million with EBITDA ratio of 6-7%. SHIP-LOG employs 32 people.
The acquisition of SHIP-LOG further strengthens Eimskip’s reefer logistics services and increases the commodity portfolio with the addition of food and pharmaceutical logistics, with new customer base and volumes. SHIP-LOG will strengthen Eimskip’s position in Denmark and will support its network to capitalize on new opportunities for further development in Eimskip’s logistics services.
SHIP-LOG will continue to operate independently within the Eimskip group through our freight management centers, serving our clients and overseas partners ensuring business as usual. High levels of integrity and logistics services are fundamentals of SHIP-LOG and we believe this together with the Eimskip group will benefit our loyal clients and partners. Being a part of Eimskip enables SHIP-LOG to continue the positive growth through significant mutual synergies."
Annual revenue about EUR 17 million.
