About Dania

At Dania Connect, we make the world smaller, the route shorter and the haulage of shipping containers more sustainable.

Since 1938, Dania Connect’s ever-growing fleet of trucks and trailers has connected Danish container terminals with origins and final destinations for overseas cargo.

Today, every container is handled and moved with precision – and with proven responsibility with regards to the climate, the environment, safety and working conditions.

For a quarter of a century, light blue blood has coursed through our company’s veins. A life force that continues to define our mind-set and actions.

At Dania Connect, all roads are therefore paved with due diligence – and a modern mind-set.

The owners of Dania Connect are both green and light blue

The majority of Dania Connect A/S is owned by CEO, Frank Hjortekaer-Jensen (right), while Chairman of the Board, Anders Bahn Christiansen (left), owns the remaining minority. In 2012, they jointly acquired Dania Connect A/S (then Dania Trucking A/S) from A.P. Moller Maersk through a management buyout.

Both owners have extensive experience from the transport industry, and the management training they received during their time under the light blue seven-pointed Maersk star still shines through in several aspects of operations. Not least when it comes to qualities such as due diligence, forethought and our business ethics.
