"We are honoured to be on the list and happy to be part of that select group of companies," says Jens Bjørn Andersen, CEO of DSV A/S.
The list was presented 4 September by Danish Minister for Trade and European Affairs, Nick Hækkerup. Among the chosen companies are global brands like LEGO, Carlsberg and Maersk Line.
"In 1989 we were still a small Danish trucking company with about 360 employees, but through some very audacious acquisitions and bold moves DSV has grown to be a global company in the intervening years," he continues.
The 30 model companies will feature in a report meant to inspire others who are ready to establish international businesses.
