Kuehne & Nagel acquires Rotra's overland segment

Rotra is a Dutch-based road transport operator and logistics company providing Europe-wide overland transportation as well as contract logistics services for Dutch, Belgian and international customers. It also manages cross dock facilities in the Netherlands and in Belgium.

 

Rotra’s seafreight, airfreight and container terminal activities (Container Terminal Doesburg) of Rotra remain with the company’s current owners.

 

Following the recent takeover of the Jöbstl Group in Austria, this new acquisition is seens as another strategic step for Kuehne + Nagel in expanding its leading European overland network with strong positions in all major markets.

 

"Rotra is a leading and well-rooted player in the Netherlands and in Belgium, two of the centres of gravity for logistics in Europe," said Stefan Paul, Member of the Management Board of Kuehne + Nagel International AG, responsible for Overland.

 

"Its activities strategically complement Kuehne + Nagel’s existing network all over Europe, to the benefit of our local and international customers who will have access to our expanded service portfolio in this region."

 

The deal is subject to regulatory approvals.
