Finnish forwarders join forces
Turku-headquartered Finnish haulier Freja has acquired the business and share capital of TL Trans, a specialist in temperature-controlled transport. TL Trans’s personnel and equipment will be transferred to Freja. Freja Finland’s current capacity of roughly 850 curtain trailers will be expanded by about 80 thermo trailers (reefers).
“With the acquisition, we will strengthen our position in international road haulage services. Now we will also be able to offer more temperature-controlled transports from and to Finland in the future,” said Freja managing director Matti Urmas.
The new office in Ostrobothnia, in addition to the Vaasa office, will also strengthen Freja’s operations in this region. TL Trans was owned by Jörgen Byskata and Marko Ruotsalainen and was founded in 1992. (ben)
