SEK-closing-20170707Today, the acquisition of SEK Zollagentur (“SEK”) was finalised. The acquisition is an important step in KGH’s development into a full-fledged pan-European trade and customs management company. SEK has a strong foothold in airfreight, with offices at several key airports and strengthens KGH abilities to provide German as well as other European customers with a vast range of services, regardless of transportation mode.

The acquisition of SEK follows a series of acquisitions, the most recent one being the acquisition of AOB Außenwirtschafts- und Organisationsberatung GmbH (“AOB”) in Germany in December, last year. After the acquisition of SEK, KGH in Germany will have a turnover of more than Euro 8 million and a presence in major locations throughout the country.
