Green Cargo has decided to exit the joint venture DB Cargo Scandinavia, which mainly handles transit traffic through Denmark for its owners Green Cargo and DB Cargo. The decision is due to the owners being unable to reach an agreement on certain issues, primarily concerning pricing.

“Our goal is always to help our clients with solutions that entail cost efficiency, improved delivery capacity and reduced climate impact. We have identified favourable possibilities for developing our international business with more of our own routes between Europe and Scandinavia, and the price levels in the joint venture have acted as a complicating factor in developing these,” said Jan Kilström, CEO of Green Cargo.
DB Cargo Scandinavia will continue to deliver its production services to Green Cargo for most of 2018. During this period, Green Cargo will determine how it will continue to produce services transiting Denmark moving forward.

“Moving forward, Green Cargo will also purchase some traffic from DB Cargo Scandinavia, but as a supplier to Green Cargo. The change in the owner arrangement will have no negative impact on our customers’ freight solutions or deliveries. These will continue to function as previously or with improved quality,” said Jan Kilström.
