The company was founded in 1980, when Kim Johansen bought a small firm of haulage contractors, with nine vehicles, in Valby, a city near Copenhagen. Back then, Kim Johansen started by driving for a few shippers, securing a regular driving route for SAS Cargo in the process—and one still to be found among our clientèle.
Establishing a presence in Eastern Europe
Following set-up in Norway (1992) and France (2002), consolidating our position in Scandinavia and Europe, the company began to direct its focus on the eastern part of Europe. This resulted in the creation of companies in Estonia (2004) and Poland (2007).
With the two latest subsidiaries having joined the existing group, we have now expanded our presence in Europe so as also to include the new EU east countries—countries we view as large potential markets.
With activities, offices and driver hubs throughout large parts of Europe, Kim Johansen Transport Group is now an international player, and one that will also be found on the European transport market of the future.
