Nordic Transport Group has acquired the majority stake of the shares in the full-service logistics provider Polar Logistics International.

Polar and NTG is a perfect match with their complementary business model and close client relationships. Polar and NTG share the same growth philosophy proven by a constant and controlled growth over the last years. Together we can now offer wider European coverage and a strong foothold to Russian and Eastern markets” says Group CEO’s Mikkel Fruergaard and Jesper E. Petersen from NTG.

“This merger provides a solid opportunity for Polar Logistics customers and employees: First, our customers will get a wider service and coverage offered by the new NTG / Polar Group; second, for our employees this is a fantastic opportunity to expand their expertise and strengthen their contribution to our customers’ success”.  “We believe that long relationships, excellent and expanded customer service will take us further” says Chairman Esa Kataisto from Polar Logistics.
