K+N buys Rotra overland business

Kuehne + Nagel (K+N) has acquired the overland and logistics activities of the Netherlands-headquartered Rotra.

Rotra is a family-owned multimodal transport company that operates a fleet of over 200 trucks, providing Europe-wide overland transportation and contract logistics services.

The firm’s sea freight and airfreight operations, as well as its container terminal activities, are not included in the K+N deal, which remains subject to approval.

“Rotra is a leading and well-rooted player in the Netherlands and in Belgium – two of the centres of gravity for logistics in Europe,” said Stefan Paul, member of the management board of K+N International, responsible for overland.

“Their activities strategically complement K+N’s existing network all over Europe, to the benefit of our local and international customers who will have access to our expanded service portfolio in this region,” he added.
