Elanders and Dimerco enter into a joint venture for air and sea freight forwarding business

Share

The Taiwan-based global transportation and logistics specialist Dimerco acquires a 25 percent stake in Elanders’ newly founded subsidiary, ITG Air & Sea GmbH. The business in the new subsidiary mainly stems from Elanders’ subsidiary ITG’s air & sea freight forwarding business, which in 2018 had a turnover of some EUR 74 million. Dimerco also has the option to increase its stake to 49 percent after two years. This joint venture between Elanders and Dimerco is still subject to the approval of the responsible anti-trust authorities and planned closing date is January 1st, 2020. Both companies signed the agreement on September 3rd 2019.

Dimerco is a public company, listed on the Taipei Exchange (TPEx) in 2001. Dimerco is a leading global transportation and logistics firm that has been providing professional services nearly 50 years through strategic alliance with airlines and ocean liners, etc., based on the capability to integrate and streamline Supply Chain Management process to help customer enjoy feasible logistics solution. Dimerco will adopt the business growth strategy focusing on supply of far-reaching international logistic services by means of channel globalization, product diversification, operation optimization, information centralization and operation localization, as well as applications of Internet and IoT and construction of tangible and virtual channels. The company has strategically placed a global network with extensive marketing & sales outlets in China and Asia Pacific and key complementary operations in Europe and North America, totally covering 160 business locations in 16 countries generated US$611.84 million in gross revenue in 2018.

"We see enormous potential in the spin-off of our air and sea freight forwarding business and the cooperation with Dimerco”, says ITG Managing Director Holger Funk, who will also be responsible for ITG Air & Sea GmbH. In the new constellation, ITG will be able to concentrate even more on its core competencies in the air and sea freight sector. ITG’s parent company LGI Logistics Group International (LGI) can thus offer even better integrated logistics solutions in the sector Fashion & Lifestyle. In addition, the joint venture with Dimerco, which is still subject to the approval of the responsible anti-trust authorities, will increase growth opportunities and enable even better penetration of the Asian market, as well as increased negotiating powers towards the suppliers.

ITG Air & Sea GmbH will continue to be managed by ITG and its parent company LGI. All business support functions such as Human Resources and Accounting will remain within LGI.

If the necessary approvals are obtained and the closing takes place this transaction will have a minor positive effect on Elanders’ cash-flow, equity and net debt in the first quarter of 2020.

SEB: Nordic Outlook: Short-term relief but long-term risks21.1.2020 07:00:00 CETPress release

Press release Stockholm, January 21, 2020 Nordic Outlook: Short-term relief but long-term risks Sweden: Below-trend growth, rising unemployment and key rate pause The world economy seems to have emerged from last year’s manufacturing slump. Growth is accelerating cautiously, but lingering political uncertainty and supply-side constraints are diminishing the power of the upturn. Central bank signals of low key interest rates for a lengthy period will provide support, but they also raise questions about long-term risks of debt build-up and spiralling asset prices. Fiscal policymakers can play an increased role, but because of rigid fiscal frameworks and weak government finances, the dose of stimulus will still be cautious. In Sweden, sentiment indicators point to weak or even falling GDP in late 2019 and early 2020, but a recovery in household consumption and a turnaround in residential construction suggest that the economy will keep expanding in 2020. Growth will speed up in 2021 as Swe

SEB: Nordic Outlook: Kortsiktig lättnad men långsiktiga risker21.1.2020 07:00:00 CETPressemelding

Pressmeddelande Stockholm 21 januari 2020 Nordic Outlook: Kortsiktig lättnad men långsiktiga risker Sverige: Tillväxt under trend – stigande arbetslöshet och räntepaus Världsekonomin ser ut att ha stått emot fjolårets industrisvacka. Tillväxten växlar upp försiktigt men kvarstående politisk osäkerhet och utbudsrestriktioner dämpar kraften i uppgången. Central­bankssignaler om låga räntor under lång tid ger stöd men reser också frågor kring långsiktiga risker med skulduppbyggnad och upptrissade tillgångspriser. Finanspolitiken kan spela en ökad roll men stela ramverk och svaga statsfinanser gör att stimulansdosen ändå blir försiktig. I Sverige tyder sentimentsindikatorer på svag eller t o m fallande BNP i slutet av 2019 och början av 2020. Åter­hämtning för hushållens konsumtion och vändning för bostadsbyggandet talar dock för att BNP fortsätter växa under 2020. Tillväxten stärks 2021 när Sverige följer med internationell konjunktur uppåt. Fortsatt stark befolkningstillväxt bidrar till
