Our history

The Group was founded by 57-year-old Jørgen Hansen, who has worked in the transport sector for decades.

He established the Nordic Transport Group in 2011 with the goal of creating one of Europe’s leading transport companies via partnerships with the most highly skilled small and medium-sized players in the business. This model soon proved sustainable. Now, just four years later, the Group has over 50 companies and more are joining all the time.
