Bolloré Logistics takes majority stake in Denmark’s Global Solutions

Bolloré Logistics has taken a majority stake in the Danish freight forwarder Global Solutions as part of the French forwarder’s “strategic development through external growth”.
A Bolloré spokesperson said: “This latest transaction will expand further Bolloré Logistics’ network in Europe and the company’s global end-to-end offering in the Scandinavian markets.
“Already established in Norway, it now benefits from Denmark’s Global Solutions network, which has been operating on the Danish market for 11 years, with triple expertise in the airfreight, seafreight and express business lines, particularly on the Europe-Asia axis.”
Global Solutions, now Bolloré Logistics brand, has two offices: at Copenhagen airport, and its headquarters in Vejle, the country’s logistics hub.
Henri Le Gouis, chief executive Europe of Bolloré Logistics, said: "This new location will enable us to better serve our key account customers in Denmark and more generally in Scandinavia.
“We will support Danish companies in their international development and logistics projects, particularly in Africa, the continent of the future with strong market opportunities, where we operate as the 1st integrated logistics network."
David Smith, chief executive of Bolloré Logistics Northern Europe, said: "We are also aiming to strengthen our range of solutions and services for the Aid & Relief sector, which is strongly represented in Denmark."
Thomas Toubro, managing director-founder of Global Solutions, said: “I am very confident for the future, and believe in our ability to elevate Bolloré Logistics to the rank of the leading transport and logistics operators in Scandinavia."
