Important step for the future of the HSF Logistics Group of companies

The HSF Logistics Group - a family business for four generations and specialised in the logistics of conditioned food within Europe - has undergone enormous growth in recent years, particularly as a result of the cooperation and merger with the N&K companies in Scandinavia. Besides transport, we have become a strong player in packaging management and warehousing within the food sector.  

In order to secure the long-term future of the company main shareholders felt that now was the time to secure the future of the company with a long-term owner having similar values to HSF Logistics and it is our believe that DFDS can create the basis for a stable future with excellent opportunities for the further expansion and growth, continuing the high standards and values towards customers and employees.

Business as normal until regulatory approval is in place We expect the acquisition to be approved within three months. Until then, the daily business of HSF Logistics and DFDS remains as is today. Simon Frederiks, Martin Gade Gregersen, Dennis Nijmeijer, Frank Kremer and all management members will remain in active function to prepare for an optimal integration of the two companies.

We trust that we have provided you with the relevant necessary information for the time being.
