DFDS has acquired 100% of the Dutch logistics company Huisman Group
To further expand and develop DFDS’ European logistics services, DFDS has acquired 100% of the share capital of the Dutch logistics company Huisman Group BV headquartered in Wijchen, the company said in its release.
Huisman Group is a provider of part-load transport solutions and contract logistics focused on time-critical freight between the UK/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 23m.
Huisman Group expands DFDS’ activities between continental Europe and the UK/Ireland and adds, in particular, expertise in part-load solutions. This is expected to enable a further development of part-load solutions in DFDS’ logistics network as well as access to new customers. The acquisition is thus expected to bring synergies from both business development and operational integration.
