Jetpak acquires AdenaPicko's

Jetpak acquires AdenaPicko's SAS-owned Jetpak Nordic AB has acquired Schenker-BTL's interest in the AdenaPicko's messenger and delivery service company. The ownership structure means that in future AdenaPicko's is incorporated in the Jetpak Group. AdenaPicko's has had good cooperation with Jetpak in Sweden for some time and new investments are planned. "The intention is to further develop the good cooperation between AdenaPicko's and Jetpak to include new services and expansion into new geographical markets," says Einar Longva, President of the Jetpak Group. "Both companies are active in a segment that is undergoing major changes. Combined, we can meet new challenges - Jetpak with express shipments and AdenaPicko's with local pick-up/delivery and technical logistics. Joint IT investments, particularly in e-commerce, will reduce costs. However, it is important the each company's focus on its operations is retained," continues Einar Longva. "We are in full agreement about how AdenaPicko's shall develop. Jetpak and Adena have much in common and it is against this background that we are now withdrawing from ownership in the knowledge that AdenaPicko's is in good hands," says Claes Berglund, Marketing Manager at Schenker-BTL.
