Stockholm, September 28: Following a review of the current business environment and its strategic
positioning, Hillebrand Gori – a DHL company, has decided to divest its domestic warehousing and
distribution business for alcoholic beverages to Skanlog, the largest independent alcoholic logistic
service provider in the Nordics. In this context the warehouse and offices in Jordbro, Stockholm will
be taken over by Skanlog by the end of October 2023. Skanlog will fulfil all obligations towards
customers and suppliers, and employees affected will be offered job opportunities at Skanlog.
“As we take this significant step forward, it is a pleasure to welcome a team of highly competent and
dedicated professionals into our Skanlog family. The employees of Hillebrand Gori have a long
history of delivering excellence and their expertise is invaluable to us. Together, we will continue to
build on the foundation of trust, competence, and customer-focused values that both Skanlog and
Hillebrand Gori have upheld, knowing that we are combining the strengths and competencies of two
reputable companies. Our commitment to delivering excellence remains unwavering, and we look
forward to setting new standards and bringing even more value to our customers and the market,"
says Mona Zuko, Managing Director at Skanlog Sweden.

leader and full-service supplier within logistic services to customers of alcoholic beverages in
Sweden, and Skanlog will work even harder to provide a service that is second to none to the
“Hillebrand Gori – a DHL company, regularly reviews its strategic positioning in the various markets
in which we operate. After one of these regular strategic reviews, we focused more on our core
competencies in Sweden outside the domestic warehousing and distribution of alcoholic beverages.
In Skanlog we have found a very well-positioned and experienced partner in the market that is
characterised by a customer- and people-centric corporate culture. With Skanlog’s focus on providing leading warehousing and distribution services to the BWS segment in Scandinavia, we are
firmly convinced they will take the business to new strengths and heights,” says Søren Nymann,
Area Director BWS Nordics & Baltics, Hillebrand Gori – a DHL company.
Hillebrand Gori will continue its business in Sweden and focus on international logistics of
beverages, beer, wine and spirits which are the company’s core competencies. Hence, international
customers will remain unaffected by the acquisition and will continue to experience daily high-quality
logistics and transport services by Hillebrand Gori.
