in delivering innovative transport solutions
In March 1977 the founders of Unifeeder, Peter Bohnsen, and Tonny D. Paulsen, turned their strong faith in the feeder concept into reality by chartering a vessel capable of carrying the equivalent of 100 20’ containers. With their well-rounded background in shipping and international transportation, the two Danes laid the foundation for what would become a wide business platform.
Since the foundation in Aarhus in 1977, Unifeeder has grown from the biggest and best-connected Feeder & Shortsea network in Europe to being an international logistics company, providing efficient and sustainable logistics services to the Middle East, Africa & Asia.
