September 2 - Scandinavian Shipping and Logistics AS is changing its name to Greencarrier Shipping & Logistics AS with immediate effect.

Greencarrier Group, one of the Nordic region's largest privately-owned transport companies, acquired Scandinavian Shipping and Logistics in 2011 as part of its long-term strategy to expand services regionally and globally

By bringing all of the companies under the Greencarrier banner, it hopes to strengthen the name and reputation of the brand alongside facilitating increased co-operation with their companies and partners, says Øyvind Lygre, ceo of Greencarrier Shipping & Logistics AS.

Greencarrier Shipping & Logistics AS says that it will continue to offer forwarding, shipping, terminals and port logistics services with the high degree of personal attention and commitment for which it is well-known.

Its offices in Drammen, Moss, Kristiansand and Stavanger will all take the new name, as will the other Scandinavian Shipping & Logistics AS company, Ths Arbo Høeg AS, which is based in Larvik.
