Estron Group is a family-owned com­pa­ny loca­ted in Rot­ter­dam, the Net­her­lands, with around 130 employees. It’s a medium-sized logi­stics ser­vice pro­vi­der with a fleet of 300 trai­lers and 120 trucks, based in a stra­te­gic loca­ti­on in the port of Rot­ter­dam. The Group ser­vices both full- and part-load trans­ports for dry goods by road and fer­ry bet­ween main­ly the UK and Ger­ma­ny, Bene­lux, and Poland.

The acqui­si­ti­on of Estron Group expands DFDS’ trans­port net­work in seve­ral ways. By adding road trans­port capa­ci­ty to the exis­ting full-load ope­ra­ti­on to and from the UK, invol­ving both fer­ry and road trans­port, we can ali­gn this ser­vice with the exis­ting ope­ra­ti­ons from DFDS’ loca­ti­on in Vla­ar­din­gen, the Net­her­lands. In addi­ti­on, Estron Group’s part-load and warehousing ope­ra­ti­ons com­ple­ment the exis­ting simi­lar ope­ra­ti­ons based in Wijchen, the Netherlands.

The acqui­si­ti­on thus streng­thens cus­to­mer offe­rings and is expec­ted to gene­ra­te both com­mer­cial and ope­ra­tio­nal synergies.

“The acqui­si­ti­on of Estron Group expands and enhan­ces our road and fer­ry trans­port net­work con­nec­ting con­ti­nen­tal Euro­pe and the UK. Our offe­ring of warehousing and logi­stics ser­vices to espe­ci­al­ly our Dutch cus­to­mers is also great­ly impro­ved,” says Niklas Anders­son, Exe­cu­ti­ve Vice Pre­si­dent and Head of Logi­stics Division.

„We are con­vin­ced that DFDS is a stra­te­gic fit for Estron. By beco­ming DFDS we can expand the trans­port net­work of DFDS by adding capa­ci­ty to the exis­ting full-load ope­ra­ti­on to and from the UK for the ulti­ma­te com­bi­na­ti­on of road and fer­ry trans­port. In addi­ti­on, DFDS Wijchen is an ide­al com­bi­na­ti­on for our part-load and warehousing ope­ra­ti­ons,“ says Den­nis Noor­dzij, CEO Estron Group.
