In 2006, I left Maersk to pursue the dream of independence.
We started 2 employees with 2 laptops and mobiles and nothing but a belief that focusing on customer service and creativity could create a place for us in a market dominated by large - often global - freight forwarders.
Now, 12 years later, I am proud and pleased, together with good colleagues to have created a profitable company with offices in Vejle and Kastrup Airport.
Without support from customers and suppliers, both in Denmark and internationally, we would not have made it till here and I am humble and thankful for the amazing loyalty and support we have experienced over the years, from both large and small customers.
The last 2 years have been our best ever, but sometimes there are opportunities in life that one has to evaluate and assess the potential of.
A such occurred as a result of conversations with Bolloré Logistics, that with more than 20,000 employees in over 100 countries worldwide, is in the top 10 in the global logistics market.
Bolloré Logistics has previously only been on the Danish market through agents, but as part of a global investment in new markets, Bolloré wanted a stronger presence in Denmark.
In the beginning of 2018 the last documents were signed and thereby ending one chapter while starting a new with Bolloré Logistics as a shareholder of Global Solutions A/S and myself as CEO of the new company. It is our ambition to grow in a number of defined business areas that match Bolloré Logistic’s global competencies within, among other areas, aerospace, Aid & Relief logistics and, not least,development of logistics solutions on the African continent where Bolloré Logistics is recognized as an absolute market leader.
Thank you to all who have taken part in the trip so far - I am excited to continue working with Denmark's best colleagues and, together with skilled new colleagues globally, to bring Bolloré Logistics successfully into the Danish market.
