DANX joins forces with Tromsø Budbil Sentral to strengthen its presence in northern Norway
DANX’s investment in TBS will expand its network in hard-to-reach areas of northern Norway and create opportunities for further service and sector growth.
DANX, part of the DANX Carousel group, has joined forces with Tromsø Budbil Sentral (TBS), the largest supplier of courier services in northern Norway.
The partnership will see DANX offer strategic investment and resource support while benefitting from TBS’ well-established local customer network, which stretches from Narvik to Kirkenes, in northern Norway.
“By joining forces, we strengthen our offering to northern Norway, expand our network, and progress the DANX Carousel group's ambition to become the European leader for time-critical in-night logistics,” said Ole Larsen, Managing Director, Norway, DANX.
“We’re looking forward to working with the TBS team to further develop their network, solution, and sector offering which will bring about more success together in the future.”
TBS has been operating in northern Norway for the past 20 years and boasts a fleet of temperature-controlled vehicles with a payload of up to 8,000 kg.
The new venture represents a significant development for DANX in northern Norway, enabling it to provide its customers with a pre-7am delivery service of regular and temperature-controlled goods to harder-to-reach destinations.
Frank Riise, Managing Director of TBS, will continue to head up the courier service’s operations as it joins DANX.
“We are looking forward to growing with DANX and are excited about the commercial and operational possibilities that will arise as well as the new developmental employee opportunities,” said Riise.
“This integration with DANX represents a great opportunity for TBS and we look forward to continuing to deliver an excellent level of service to our existing customers and hopefully to many more.”
The development comes after DANX’s recent joint venture with Polish logistics specialist, ILS, which has boosted DANX’s network in Poland, improving its time-critical and in-night logistics solutions in Eastern Europe.
