On 9 October 2015, we announced that we had entered into an agreement to acquire UTi Worldwide Inc. Today, we can finally announce that the agreement has been approved and closed. In future, once the integration of the two companies has been completed, the combined business will be operating under the DSV brand.
One of the world’s strongest transport and logistics networks
The transaction makes DSV the fourth largest freight forwarder in the world by adding approximately 50% to DSV’s existing revenue. In addition, the enhanced DSV has a more diversified geography and business mix as well as:
• +40,000 employees
• +80 countries
• +1,000 offices and logistics facilities
• 4.7 mill. warehousing m2
The transaction has significantly strengthened our global market position within our Air & Sea division, making us the world’s sixth and seventh largest operator within ocean and air freight, respectively. It also adds a global scale to our contract logistics division, Solutions, and expands our road freight and distribution activities to cover Europe, North America, Africa and Asia. Last but not least, the new and improved DSV will offer strong specialist skills in industry verticals such as automotive, healthcare/pharmaceuticals, energy etc.
An interim period of business as usual
In order to ensure a quick and smooth integration, the integration process will be initiated immediately. In the meantime, DSV and UTi will continue to operate as two individual companies servicing our customers to the same high standard as usual.
During this interim period, all contact should be conducted via the usual channels to the known contact persons. If in doubt, or if you have questions, please contact us via the contact forms listed to the right.
