Posti strengthens its presence in Sweden and Norway

Posti has acquired Aditro Logistics, one of the leading contract logistics companies in the Nordics​. The acquisition is in line with Posti’s ambition of growing its logistics, parcel and e-commerce businesses. 

On 24 February , 2020, Posti, Valedo Partners and other shareholders of Aditro Logistics signed an agreement, under which Posti will acquire the entire share capital of Aditro Logistics AB.

Aditro Logistics was founded in 1973 as Dila Logistik AB in Jönköping, Sweden. The company offers a broad portfolio of logistics services such as warehousing, staffing and transportation services. Aditro Logistics has an attractive, highly diverse and loyal customer base. The company has six warehouses in Sweden and one in Norway, with a total of approximately 230,000 m2 of storage space.

Over the past years, Aditro Logistics has grown profitably and organically, clearly outpacing the market growth. In 2019, Aditro Logistics’ net sales were some EUR 100 million (some SEK 1,100 million). The company has 1,100 full-time employees, out of which 1,050 are based in Sweden and 50 in Norway.

“Posti is growing in line with its strategy, and through this acquisition we are strengthening our presence in the Nordics and the Baltic Sea region. Together, we can support our customers to be even more competitive in the market,” says Turkka Kuusisto, President and CEO of Posti Group. “In Finland, our Transval Group is the market leader in logistics outsourcing solutions. With the acquisition of Aditro Logistics, we are becoming one of the major players in the Swedish and Norwegian market as well. This enables us to better develop and broaden our service offering for our customers in the Nordics,” Kuusisto continues.​

“This transaction is great for us and for our customers,” says Johannes Gussander, CEO of Aditro Logistics. “We have over 40 years of experience in providing a broad range of warehousing, staffing and transportation services to a versatile customer base. In addition, we have a proven track record of driving profitable organic growth. By joining forces with Posti, we can learn from each other, expand our offering and take our current logistics outsourcing solutions to the next level,” Gussander continues.

After the closing of the transaction, Aditro Logistics will be operated as an independent Business Group within Posti and it will be headed by Johannes Gussander, the current CEO of Aditro Logistics. Gussander will report to Turkka Kuusisto, the President and CEO of Posti Group.

The transaction is subject to customary competition clearance in Sweden and is expected to close in the second quarter of 2020.
