FCS Logistics Renamed GreenCarrier Finland

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

The IATA approved Finnish forwarding company Oy FCS Logistics Ltd has been renamed GreenCarrier Finland Oy, with effect from 23 February, 2009. All contact details will be unchanged with the exception of e-mail addresses, which will adopt the style firstname.familyname@greencarrier.com. The company’s new website address will be www.greencarrier.com.

FCS Logistics was acquired by the Gothenburg-headquartered logistics specialist GreenCarrier International in June 2008 as part of its strategy to strengthen its position in the Nordic region. Founded in 1995, FCS offers international air and sea container transport services and as an IATA approved forwarder, the company has contracts with major airlines around the world. It also offers charter transport and on-board courier services.

GreenCarrier Finland handles high value and time-sensitive goods. Direct routings are selected whenever possible and for particularly urgent shipments such as ships’ spares, medical equipment and medicines, it closely monitors individual movements to ensure they are loaded on board and sent as scheduled.

A particular specialty is the transport of livestock including pets, horses, cattle and poultry. Pick-up and delivery, kennels, quarantine, veterinarians and flight reservations can be organized with a special emphasis on airlines and schedules that are best for the well-being of the animals.

Staffan Kjellberg, Managing Director, GreenCarrier International, said “It had always been our intention to integrate FCS Logistics into our mainstream activities. Like other GreenCarrier offices, GreenCarrier Finland is strong in certain niches and will play an important role in our development along the Baltic coastline and into Russia.

“As Green Carrier Finland, the company will expand the range of services it offers its customer base, for example by taking full advantage of our strengths in the Asian market. In countries such as China, the Nordic and Baltic regions are regarded as one market and we are now strong in the Nordic countries and expanding rapidly in the Baltic states.”

GreenCarrier offers its customers a single point of contact for all their logistics requirements. With offices in Sweden, Norway, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus, Ukraine and Asia, GreenCarrier specializes in shipping services between northern Europe and the Far East.

GreenCarrier International is part of the Björk.Eklund Group, one of Sweden’s largest privately owned logistics and transportation companies.
