NMT’s 2020 acquisitions put company in strong position for year ahead
The NMT Group ended 2019 with an excellent business result, which carried into 2020. Despite the world situation and the many challenges within shipping, NMT is expecting a “well done” result also for this year.
At NMT Shipping we never compromise in terms of services and frequency for our customers. We maintain the view that consistency is key and builds solid trust. So, when agreed tonnage by one of our partners defaults on one NMT liner service, we are able to activate dormant tonnage. M/V Stena Forteller joined NMT in October to enter our West Africa service, expanding our capacity.
In May 2019 Stena AB acquired 66 percent of the shares in NMT Holding B.V., a position that emphasized the shipping industries confidence in the business concept of NMT.
Despite Covid-19, the NMT Group entered the new decade with renewed optimism in terms of world trade, specifically related to our business niche. The expansion of our family along with the stimulus to experiment and grow in new business areas, has motivated the entire staff and presents new worldwide opportunities. We are well-positioned for continuing success in 2021.
NMT Group Expansion
In October, the NMT Group acquired United Cargo Handling Group that consists of Hansen Shipping USA, Hansen Shipping UK, BEVO Spedition Germany and Hansen Specialized USA (trucking division).
NMT Groups substantial expansion in just two decades was primarily fueled by organic growth. The acquisition of Hansen Shipping is part of NMT’s new strategy to further develop its mining and construction equipment (high & heavy) shipping segment.
“Combining the Hansen Shipping strength and knowledge with the NMT Group will mathematically prove that in this case 1 + 1 = 3,” Frits Dix, president of the NMT Group, said. “This is a best possible outcome for our new combined client and supplier group worldwide, and enhances our motto “the NMT Way of Doing Business.”
