September 9 - Greencarrier Freight Services Finland has acquired the freight forwarder Rahtihuolinta Oy.

Rahtihuolinta, which has 19 staff and two offices, offers both air and sea freight forwarding services and has been working with Hellmann Worldwide Logistics for the past 10 years.

The deal is in line with Greencarrier's growth strategy in Finland and allows the company to improve its air and ocean business together with Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, says Jarmo Halonen, managing director of Greencarrier Freight Services Finland.

Tapio Talasterä and Anne Pennala of Rahtihuolinta feel that the deal will give them the chance to develop their business as part of a bigger organisation.

The implementation process will start immediately and is due to be completed by the end of November.
