Joint Venture Nagel Liller A/S approved in Denmark

The Danish Competition Council has approved the Nagel Liller A/S Joint Venture. By forming a joint company with Liller Trans A/S and KK Logistic A/S, Nagel Danmark A/S, the Danish national company within the international Nagel-Group, intends to strengthen its domestic business activities in Denmark in particular. The launch of operations for the Joint Venture is planned for April 2017. “Nagel Liller A/S will in future take over all distribution services in Denmark for the Nagel-Group and national customers, whereas from its Padborg site Nagel Danmark will continue to have responsibility for international transport to and from Scandinavia,” explains Kim Gravesen, Managing Director Nagel Danmark A/S. Nationwide distribution and warehousing solutions will be offered in all temperature ranges, from dry goods through to frozen products. At the branches in Velje, Struer, Odense and Bjæverskov, a total of around 17,500 square meters of warehousing capacity are available. Nagel Liller has its own fleet of more than 150 tractor units and 300 trailers available for distribution services. Moreover, independent carriers will also be used as suppliers. “Founding Nagel Liller A/S is an important step in meeting the continuously rising demands of the market even better in future,” says Kim Gravesen. “This particularly applies to demand in the food industry for even quicker throughput times, same-day or overnight deliveries - with ever shorter order cycles.” The Joint Venture will provide better and denser geographical coverage in Denmark. Kim Gravesen: “This will bring us even closer to our customers.” After approval by the Danish Cartel Office, the detailed implementation phase for the Joint Venture is now underway, culminating in the start of operational business. The activities of KK Logistic A/S and Liller Trans A/S will be transferred to Nagel Liller, as will Nagel Danmark’s domestic business. The business of the new company, employing around 300 people, will be managed by Thomas Lindahl Christensen (Liller Trans) and Peter Kristian Kristensen (KK Logistic) as Directors.   Read More
