The Rhenus Group, a leading international logistics service provider, has announced the acquisition of Scandinavian business Swedlink towards the end of 2019.

The company joins the growing Rhenus network of more than 750 sites and 33,000 employees worldwide. 

With offices located in Stockholm and Malmö, Swedlink will continue to support its loyal customer base. The acquisition opens up greater opportunity for Rhenus services in freight transport across Western Europe, specifically in the Scandinavian market.

On the acquisition, Claes Ostrander, CEO of Swedlink added: “Rhenus has been our largest partner for a number of years and, as a result, we already have a well-established relationship. We look forward to joining the Rhenus family and sharing our expertise in the Scandinavian market over the coming months.”
