“This deal will enhance and expand our operation in Sweden where we will be able to consolidate our new additions with the existing operations. We will broaden the range of services to enter new segments and ensure that we are able to fulfil our new contract with Volvo Cars,” says Henrik Ageflod, Director, Logistics Services, who signed the acquisition with Lars Berndtsson as pictured.
“GA Åkerierna is in a good shape and it’s business is a good match for our local haulage company. In addition, Lars has for some time wanted to step down and this transaction will allow him to.
