Almost half a century of transport expertise
Since our establishment in 1976, we have been through a series of mergers to maintain a key position in the global transport industry. As a result, we are now one of the largest transport and logistics companies in the world.
Strengthening our global position
To put focus on DSV’s different services and customer segments, in 2001 we separated our operations into three divisions: Road, Air & Sea and Solutions.
In 2005, our position in the air and sea transport industry was further strengthened with the acquisition of J.H. Bachmann. The following year, DSV acquired Frans Maas and advanced its position from being a Scandinavian player to being a true Pan-European road transport and logistics player.
Consolidating our global position
In 2019, DSV joined forces with Panalpina Welttransport, becoming the world's fourth largest transport and logistics company. The addition strengthened our position across the globe, particularly within air freight and sea freight.
In 2021, DSV acquired Agility’s Global Integrated Logistics business (GIL), a leading global transport and logistics provider with a strong footprint in emerging markets. With this new addition to our organisation, we became a global top-three player within transport and logistics.
