Greencarrier Freight Services forms Joint Venture together with Hecksher

By Sofia Schultz, November 19, 2018
As of January the 1st 2019 Greencarrier Freight Services Denmark merges with Hecksher Linieagenturer A/S and as per April 1st 2019 Hecksher offices outside of Denmark merge with Nordic Consolidators (a Greencarrier company).

The merger of the two companies will drive substantial combined strength and customer value as well as synergies based on the existing footprint of Greencarrier in the global logistics market with own offices in the Nordic and Baltic countries, UK, Poland and China and the vast experience and long history of Hecksher in particular on the Danish market.

The joint venture is line with our business strategy to grow and expand within our home markets and to stay top of mind for sustainable transport solutions. Hecksher completes us in a very good way and is a great cultural fit for us says Stefan Björk, Founder & Owner of Greencarrier.


“We are very pleased with this agreement, which will help lift the activities to the “next level”. In the future, we will in all ways stand in a significantly more competitive situation and offer our customers a wide range of major business benefits including far more sophisticated IT systems. It has been important to find a Scandinavian partner, with the same ethical value set, and
we are really looking forward to this collaboration, says Lars Bertelsen, Owner of Hecksher.
