Northern Europe's largest feeder network for container transportation.

In June 2007, Montagu led and arranged the Management Buyout of Unifeeder from its founders.

Unifeeder transported containers from the large container hubs at Hamburg, Bremerhaven and Rotterdam to over 20 ports across the Nordic Region, the Baltic States and Russia. An independent feeder operator, Unifeeder collects and transports containers for many deep sea container lines, offering a frequent and reliable service with over 7,500 calls per year. The Company's feeder operations are complemented by its door-to-door container transport and freight forwarding businesses.

The Company had sales of more than €380million at the time of acquisition and is headquartered in Aarhus, Denmark. It has 200 employees and subsidiaries in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Germany and the Netherlands. In addition, the Company has a presence through agents in Belgium, England, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia

Montagu was attracted to Unifeeder because of its substantial growth and development potential, strong market position and outstanding management team.
