September 7th 2012

Scandinavian Logistics Partners AB (Scanlog) has today made an agreement with Swedish Orient Line (SOL) to acquire SOL’s subsidiary Sky Transport Sweden AB. In connection with the transaction, Swedish Orient Line will become 20% shareholder in Scanlog.

Sky Transport Sweden AB is one of Sweden’s largest autonomous air- and sea freight forwarders and has very successfully built up a comprehensive international customer- and agent network focused on offering customised transport solutions for smaller and medium sized transport buyers and forwarders.

Scandinavian Logistics Partners AB (Scanlog) is a fully independent privately owned Swedish logistics company. Scanlog is controlled by Ulf Sundberg and Mathias Wideroth together with the company’s business area managers, all with extensive experience from the Swedish and international forwarding- and logistics market.

During the next few months Scanlog and Sky’s commercial and operational activities will be integrated to operate under one name, Scandinavian Logistics Partners AB.

The new organisation will have an estimated turn over of about 150 m SEK and around 40 staff in offices in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Trelleborg, Norrkoping and Oxelosund.

”Scandinavian Logistics Partners is a company characterized by extensive experience and a high level of competence. The business model based on partnership guarantees high quality and a commitment beyond the ordinary, and we are very much looking forward to working together with the continuous expansion of the company’s operations”, Swedish Orient Line CEO and owner Michael Kjellberg says.

Scanlog’s chairman Mathias Wideroth comments: “Our aim is to offer the market a complete international forwarding and logistics company providing all four modes, air, sea, road and rail freight, all in the same organisation – a unique model in our industry. We are convinced that together with both old and new staff and management we will be able to offer an even better and more comprehensive service.
