A leading asset-light logistics company operating the largest feeder network for container transportation in Northern Europe and pan-European shortsea door-to-door operations.

We acquired Unifeeder from its founders in July 2007.  At that time the company employed around 200 people, had subsidiaries in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Germany and the Netherlands and further presence through agents in Belgium, England, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia.  Its main customers are the global deep-sea container carriers.

Achieving growth in a challenging economic climate

We supported management’s comprehensive value creation plan, which included expanding the route networks, optimising cost and strategic M&A.  Successful execution of this plan led to a strong recovery of revenue and a successful exit.
