The business transfer between CHS Group and Geodis Wilson Finland was announced in March, and following the deal, CHS Group will grow into one of the largest and most prominent private freight forwarding companies in Finland.
In the deal, Geodis Wilson Finland’s transportation and freight forwarding operations and three warehouse units located in Helsinki metropolitan area were transferred to CHS Group.
“Our primary goal is to help our customers with their business, and this transfer allows us to serve both our Finnish and foreign customers even better with their warehousing and forwarding needs”, CHS Group’s CCO Juha Harjula says.
As a result of the acquisition, the number of staff in CHS Group is increased by approximately 70 people, as all the former employees of Geodis Wilson Finland will continue to work for CHS. Harjula states that due to the growing workforce, CHS Group will be able to invest in even better and more personalized customer service. During the current spring, the whole personnel will be moving to new business premises which are located nearby Helsinki Airport.
CHS Group continues to operate as an independent and fully Finnish company and will certainly enhance its visibility in the industry in future.
