Estanc and Ahola Transport start extensive cooperation
Estanc AS and the special transport company AT Special Transport, a part of the Finnish logistics group Oyj Ahola Transport Abp, have signed an agreement of cooperation. The agreement consists of both everyday transports and strategic cooperation for future projects.
Estanc and Ahola Transport have a pretty rare similarity. Both companies are family companies, but on top of that both companies have a major shareholder that has 3 sons and 3 daughters. Two sons from the respective families, Mihkel from the Tammo family, and Jonas from the Ahola family, both have leadership roles in thier families´ companies.
As friendship between two sides started to develop, both Tammo and Ahola noticed that there are important similarities in the way that both companies approach business. Both companies are focused on sustainable missions and value-based leadership. Relying on a high level of digitalization, the belief is that the right way to grow is to invest heavily and expand the business, and last but not least believe in cooperation and not in competition when it comes to making business, says Mihkel Tammo, Managing Director Estanc AS and Jonas Ahola, Managing Director AT Special Transport.
Such commonalities and next generation orientation have brought us to this day and Estanc and Ahola Transport are happy to officially announce the beginning of the cooperation.
First and foremost, we will focus on the operative everyday level and that the role of AT Special Transport, a subsidiary of one of the leading transport companies in the Nordic countries Ahola Transport, will be central in the cooperation, but we are also looking for strategic cooperation to find places where we are able to help each other to win and to create synergies, says Mihkel Tammo from Estanc.
Estanc and Ahola Transport are pathfinders and frontrunners in developments in their respective fields of business and are certain that partnership helps to advance even quicker.
