Denmark ranks as one of the top countries within logistics thanks to its geographically advantageous location, providing global reach, efficient delivery and sourcing capabilities, which makes it a great fit for Lineage Logistics.
In fact, almost 55% of all Scandinavian companies – more than one million – and 35% of the entire Scandinavian population are within a 3-hour drive of Denmark.

Join the logistics Hub in Denmark

Denmark is specialised in frozen food products transportation, distribution and cold logistics. According to IMD, Denmark is also the #1 in the world on distribution management and on timing of logistics services.

Due to the advantageous location, Denmark can offer supreme logistics services by road, sea and air. Many food manufacturers are located in Jutland with easy and fast access to the rest of Europe by road and train.
Furthermore, Copenhagen Airport has repeatedly ranked as the most efficient airport in Europe, whereas Billund Airport in Jutland is specialised in air cargo worldwide. Many Danish ports also offer direct cargo routes to major ports in the Baltics, Central and Southern Europe, North Asia and North America.

Since Lineage Logistics entered the Nordic market in 2020, they have acquired Lundsøe Køl & Frys A/S with cold-storage facilities in Northern Jutland and in Aarhus, Super Frost Sjælland ApS, and Coldstar ApS, ensuring proximity to Lineage’s facilities throughout Denmark.

The plan is to grow this business and expand its offerings to retailers, food manufactures in Denmark and beyond.”
