About DSV

1976

DSV Global Transport and Logistics starts its history in a small Dutch town Shkuldelev, in an adjacent accommodation to the house of Leif Tulberg, one of the founders of the international logistics operator.
"Family Business", which is supported by 11 employees (4 freight forwarders, 5 account managers, Leif and his wife), quickly turns into a big company.

Summer 1976

10 independent transport companies unite under the name of DSV (De Sammensluttede Vognmænd - combined truckers). Leif Tulberg, the same manager, whose business has recently suffered from disappointing conjuncture in the logistics market, becomes the head of the big union.

1980

DSV Company, with the guidance of Leif Tulberg, increases its capacity and moves into a new office. Business is developing so rapidly that within two months the team are forced to move to a more spacious office.
Principles of the Company head lead the company to success.
They have remained unchanged to this day:
1. The owners of the company - truck drivers (they are also the shareholders).
2. The Company does not own any truck (transparent assets).
3. First – you earn, then – you spend! (the focus is on the value).

The end of the '80s

DSV Company opens its first Department of international transport. This significantly affects the development of local business, which entails opening new offices across the country. Ahead of the team there are offices in Rorup, Oem, Broendby, and finally, the team are settled in their first international headquarters in Hedehusene. The company is rapidly increasing its resource base by purchasing the assets of small local businesses.

1997 - 2000

A series of successful strategic mergers lead to a dynamic development of the company. Some of the key acquisitions are: Samson Transport in 1997 and DFDS Dan Transport Group in 2000. This increases DSV total revenues by 24 times! The effectiveness of the decisions taken is proved by practice: decisions upon mergers and acquisitions are paying their dividends in the form of satisfied customers and well-developed logistics base. The influence of DSV network is increasing significantly in the Nordic countries, the UK, the Baltic countries and Europe. The company receives a key position in air and sea freight.

2003

Upon acquisition of the Dutch logistics holding with 100-year old history Frans Maas, the first office of DSV Global Transport and Logistics opens on the territory of Ukraine.

2005

Positions in international sea freight and air transportations are considerably enhanced with the acquisition of J.H. Bachmann.

In January 2016 a crucial agreement between DSV and UTi Worldwide is signed.
