Greencarrier AB, which until now has operated as two separate organizations in Norway for its freight forwarding and logistics activities, has decided to merge them as one entity. The new combined organization will form a part of the Greencarrier Freight Services division.

Peter Nevhagen, CEO, Greencarrier Freight Services said, “By pooling our strengths, we can offer all of our customers the widest possible range of services. It will make us stronger and pave the way for new business opportunities.”

He added that the merger will make it easier for customers to do business with the Greencarrier Group. “It ensures our products and services are more transparent to our customers and the outside world.”

The legal name of the merged organization is Greencarrier Shipping & Logistics AS with Kåre Thuesen as MD.  Kåre Thuesen said, “We are excited by this development. It is a logical step as, in the past, the two companies have offered both complementary and similar services and products but operated in different geographical locations. The merger paves the way for a more unified approach and the larger geographical footprint enables us to offer our customers a wide product range with a local presence. It will also simplify the processes for our suppliers, as they now will relate to Greencarrier’s forwarding and logistics activities in one company.”

Øyvind Lygre, the former CEO of Greencarrier Shipping & Logistics, will take responsibility for port logistics and related activities. He will have a crucial role in developing the company's geographic expansion in Norway.

Greencarrier Shipping & Logistics AS has about 150 employees, with offices and facilities in Bergen, Drammen, Kristiansand, Larvik, Moss, Oslo and Stavanger.

Greencarrier Freight Services, headquartered in Sweden, is part of one of the Nordic region’s largest privately owned global transport companies, Greencarrier AB. It has offices throughout the Nordic region as well as in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine, the U.K., Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Belarus and China and employs 600 people.

Over the past three years Greencarrier AB, which has expanded through both acquisition and organic growth, has been working to streamline its organization. The group, which was founded in 2000, employs 800 people in 14 countries.
