Ekol Logistics opens company in Sweden

Published 11 January 2018

Ekol Logistics will launch its own operations under Ekol Nordics in Sweden in this month, as part of its strategy of becoming one of Europe’s major logistics intermodal providers.

It is the 16th country where Ekol has established its own operations.

Ekol Nordics regional director Jarmo Halonen said: “Ekol Nordics will offer international FTL, LTL and groupage transport. At the beginning, we will connect Nordic countries with Turkey, Middle East and other countries where Ekol has its own companies. The next stage will be to have connections with the whole Europe.”

At the beginning, the focus of Ekol in this area will be on the retail, automotive, electronics, paper and wood sectors. It is worth mentioning that Ekol has been operating in these sectors for many years now which is proven by different awards the company has received in the past for serving these branches.

Ekol Nordics is also planning to start short sea services to and from the Mediterranean region in the second half of 2018.

Ekol is aware of its responsibilities to both the environment and the community and is committed to its ethical guidelines.

As the owner of 6 Ro-Ro vessels, 2 ports and the operator of 48 block trains per week, Ekol wants to use its environment-friendly services to strengthen its presence in Europe. Thanks to intermodal solutions that Ekol offers the company saves 365000 trees per month (which is forest in the size of 850 football pitches) and enough petrol to go around the globe 365 times.

Ekol can do more than just talk about modern, innovative solutions. Ekol can actually offer them to its customers. It is possible since the company has its own R&D department which employs over 120 people who work on 130 different projects to make the company and the services even better and more effective.

 The result of the work of this department makes Ekol different from other logistics companies in the market.
