Japanese logistics group Nippon Express has made another acquisition in Europe, the Swiss based luxury furniture specialist, Tramo Group, via Nippon Express Italia. It had already acquired the Austrian company Cargo-Partner earlier this year and in 2018 it acquired Italian luxury fashion logistics services company Traconf, as well as Franco Vago. In 2012 it acquired Swedish company APC Logistics.
Nippon Express is aiming to generate half its revenue from overseas business by 2037, up from the current 30%. It currently has around 3,500 employees in Europe (out of 72,000 globally, of whom 42,500 are in Japan) and the acquisition of Tramo may add up to 500 to that total. Tramo has operations in Italy, the UK, Netherlands, France and Spain as well as in the USA.
