KGH Customs Services (Germany) has acquired the advisory and consulting company AOB Außenwirtschafts- und Organisationsberatung GmbH (“AOB”) in Germany, thus added important expertise and experience in the full service offering to local and international customers in Germany and rest of Europe.
The acquisition of AOB follows KGH’s recent expansion in Europe and the long-term strategy to develop a full-fledged pan-European trade and Customs management company. Germany is one of the most important hubs for customs services in the European mainland and through the acquisition KGH will be capable of catering German companies with more resources and a more comprehensive range of customs services that facilitate flow of goods, reduce costs and ensure compliance.
– The acquisition of AOB will further strengthen and broaden our service offering to our European customers, says Lars Börjesson CEO of KGH.
