Panalpina Expands Footprint in Denmark

Panalpina recently announced their acquisition of Carelog, a Danish freight forwarding and logistics company with a strong foothold in ocean freight and roots in the western part of Denmark.

“We want to increase our market share in Denmark,” says Stefan Karlen, Panalpina’s CEO. “The country has many export-oriented companies and its biggest industries, namely manufacturing, consumer, retail, fashion as well as healthcare, are industries that we focus on and serve globally.”

Founded in 2008, the Carelog started out with customers in the furniture and fashion industry and then expanded to other sectors such as machinery and agriculture. While Carelog is especially strong in ocean freight, Panalpina is traditionally strong in air freight. The merged company employs approximately 70 people that provide ocean freight, air freight and logistics services from six locations in all regions of Denmark including in Copenhagen, Aarhus and Odense.

“Carelog has a very healthy customer base while Panalpina has the global network and profound industry expertise that will together allow us to service the international companies optimally. We are proud to become part of a larger family and reputable brand. And although we may merge with a global player we will always be conscious of our roots and stay flexible for and committed to our existing local customers,” adds Lars Engbo, managing director of Carelog. Engbo, who was one of the founders of Carelog, has been appointed as managing director of the new company that operates under the name of Panalpina Carelog.

“Panalpina and Carelog together create a respectable mid-sized freight forwarding and logistics company in Denmark and provide a solid foundation for further growth,” says Volker Boehringer, regional CEO Europe at Panalpina. “In a market that is dominated by few enterprises, we have now a broader geographical footprint and a stronger, more balanced product offering. The ambition is clearly to become a leading player in Denmark.”
