Throughout the latest years, the Danish transport and logistics company Blue Water Shipping has increased its activities and market shares in Norway, Sweden and Finland through dedicated employees, flexible transport solution and good service. These values are shared by Norwegian Partner Solution and its 15 employees who provide transport and logistics to an array of clients from the company's offices in Vestby, Stavanger and Bergen.

Through the acquisition of Partner Solution, Blue Water Shipping will have more than 60 employees in Norway, which enables the company to provide its clients with improved service.

"We are strengthening our setup in the Norwegian market, where Blue Water already are represented with offices in Oslo and Stavanger, and our ambition is to continue our good development from the recent years. Partner Solution has many competences in sea, air and road transport, where Blue Water holds a strong position. In addition, we work in segments such as Oil & Gas, Project Transports, Cruise Logistics and Port Services", says Poul Aarre, who is responsible for Blue Water's activities in Norway, Sweden and Finland.

Lars Ophus, the founder of Partner Solution, will be responsible for Blue Water's sea and airfreight activities in Norway as well as the offices in Bergen and Stavanger. He is looking forward to becoming a part of an international transport company with more than 65 offices worldwide.

"I am pleased with this solution. Blue Water is a strong organisation with many possibilities, and we share the same values of focusing on the clients, being close to them and having a competent staff. Together, we will gain a strong presence in Norway and will be able to offer our clients more and better transport solutions and services than before", says Lars Ophus.

On a corporate level, the acquisition in Norway is a part of the objective to strengthen Blue Water's position in Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Finland through organic growth and acquisitions. In recent years, the company has carried out several acquisitions in Denmark, Finland and Sweden.

"We want to be close to our clients and provide the best solutions while having a close dialogue with them. We therefore see good possibilities in the Scandinavian market, where we have built a strong organisation through an increase in local presence, enabling us to handle the clients' different transport needs via close cooperation.
