Scandinavian Shipping & Logistics AS is changing its name to Greencarrier Shipping & Logistics AS with effect from 2, September 2013.

Greencarrier Group, one of the Nordic region’s largest privately-owned transport companies, acquired Scandinavian Shipping & Logistics in 2011 as part of its long- term strategy to expand its services, both in the region and globally.

Øyvind Lygre, CEO of Greencarrier Shipping & Logistics AS, says most of the companies in the group are already branded ‘Greencarrier’. “By bringing all the companies under the Greencarrier banner, we make it clearer to the market that we operate as a single united organization with all the benefits which that brings to our customers. It will also strengthen the name and reputation of the brand and facilitate increased co-operation with our sister companies and other partners.”

The Greencarrier Group operates in 13 markets, including China, and has more than 750 employees. It was, itself, previously known as the Björk.Eklund Group until early 2012 when it took the name Greencarrier from the Greencarrier Freight Services division which it owns.
