Blue Ocean Capital, a European port infrastructure specialist investment firm, is acquiring Danser Group from its current owners. Danser is a leading independent container logistics solutions provider in North-West Europe. The new owners are looking to expand the fleet with a focus on low carbon emission transport.
Danser offers multimodal logistics solutions such as barge, rail, truck, project, and additional services. The company transported more than 1.6 million TEU in 2021. Danser’s management continues in their current roles. The transaction is expected to close this month.
‘It is a benefit for Danser’s future growth that new owners and capital are added to the company which will support Danser as an independent operator in this market,’ says Danser CEO Ben Maelissa.
