The Icelandic transportation sector investor Avion Group said on Thursday (28 September) that its shipping and logistics subsidiary Eimskip has established a joint venture with Container Finance Ltd Oy, part of Finnish shipping group Containerships Group.

The joint venture will operate under the Containerships Group brand, and will provide door-to-door logistics services in the Baltic and North Sea area, with transshipment to Spain, Portugal, Ireland and Italy and, through the Eimskip network, to other parts of the world.

The joint venture will have a fleet of 11 vessels and is expected to achieve an annual turnover of EUR200m.

Eimskip will initially hold 65% of the joint venture, but has an option to acquire the outstanding shares in the future.

One euro (EUR) is worth approximately 0.67 British pounds (GBP).
