PRESS RELEASE - Shipping Holding A/S acquires Randers Agencies ApS

Shipping and logistics company Shipping Holding A/S based in Fredericia, Denmark, acquires Randers Agencies ApS including J. Gotfred Jensen Shipping ApS in Aarhus and Chr. Rørholms Eftf. ApS in Hobro.

With the acquisition, Shipping Holding expands its position as a significant player in Scandinavia within the agency business.

Like Shipping Holding, Randers Agencies has deep roots in maritime Denmark, and counts agency and chartering among its primary areas of business.

Regarding the acquirement of Randers Agencies ApS Søren Gran Hansen, CEO of the Shipping Group comments: “Shipping Holding has been seeking an opportunity to expand and strengthen its activities in Jutland for some time, and we are incredibly pleased that the acquisition of Randers Agencies is now in place. They are renowned for high quality and their customer focus - the same values as Shipping Holding stands for”.

With the acquisition, Shipping Holding expands the palette of services and now offers own clearance in Randers and Hobro. The company thus covers the entire coastline of Jutland from Aabenraa in the south to Frederikshavn in the north.

"The activities of all companies are complementing last year's acquisition of Rasmus Christensen Shipping ApS and existing activities in Aarhus and Aalborg, and we are now strongly represented in all of Denmark," concludes Søren Gran Hansen, CEO of the Shipping Group.

The two managers and former co-owners Karsten Danielsen and Per Sørensen will both continue in the company, where they will help ensure the continued high quality of work towards customers and collaborators.
