New Contract Logistics Director

A warm welcome on board to our new colleague Patrik Strid. Patrik will start at the end of August as Contract Logistics Director. He will be highly involved in developing the Logistics Division’s contract logistics business throughout its own and DFDS’ wider network. He will work from our office in Gothenburg.

Patrik has a solid background in logistics from an almost 30-year career. He has mostly focused on warehousing and distribution. Patrik worked for nearly 10 years for DHL Supply Chain AB in Sweden. His last position at DHL was as Operations Director, where he was responsible for all logistics in Russia while living in Moscow.

Since then, he has managed his own company that focused on logistics and offered everything from hiring staff to consulting services, contracting, and operations. This company was sold to Aditro Logistics AB where Patrik became COO and spent the last five years responsible for all operational activities.

As another company acquired Aditro, Patrik wanted a new challenge and we are happy that he will start at DFDS, continuing to grow our warehousing offering and develop more services within this area to new and existing customers.

Patrik lives in the southern part of Sweden with his wife and two sons.

“I look forward to working with Patrik. I’m sure that he will be a great contribution to Logistics with all the experience he has gained during his many years in the industry,” says Niklas Andersson, EVP and Head of the Logistics Division.
