The history behind the DSV name

In 1976, DSV, De Sammensluttede Vognmænd af 13-7 1976 A/S [the united trucking companies], was founded by nine independent trucking companies and business developer Leif Tullberg. Since then, the company has been subject to a few name changes:

Name change to DFDS Transport

In 2000, DFDS Dan Transport Group A/S was acquired, and the activities within transport and logistics continued under the name of DFDS Transport. The name of the parent company, however, remained DSV, De Sammensluttede Vognmænd af 13-7 1976 A/S. In 2001, the activities were divided into three separate divisions with individual business areas; Road, Air & Sea and Solutions.

DSV, a joint name

In 2003, the parent company shortened its name to DSV A/S, and in 2007, the activities went through a name change from DFDS Transport to DSV. This step was taken in order to mark a new and joint beginning after the acquisition of Frans Maas in 2006. Furthermore, it minimizes confusion and creates a more logical association between the name of the parent company and its activities.
