Unifeeder is a market leader with Northern Europe's largest feeder and short sea network for container transportation, serving the world's container hubs and the Intra-Europe container freight of large industrial companies.

In 2012, Unifeeder's extensive network handled almost two million container units and made over 8,000 calls in more than 40 ports. Unifeeder benefits from increasing global trade volumes which are expected to continue to outpace global GDP growth. This trend coupled with Unifeeder's cost-effectiveness and high quality service, has primed the company for continued organic and acquisitive growth. Furthermore, the use of Intra-Europe short sea container shipping is expected to increase due to rising costs of road transport, EU policy initiatives and environmental concerns, which will also serve to support the future growth of the company. Over the past six years Unifeeder has expanded into new markets such as the UK and Western Mediterranean, as well as invested to enhance its networks, logistical operations and management structures. 

Nordic Capital Fund VIII acquired Unifeeder in 2013 and will support the company to enable further and accelerated organic and acquisitive growth.
