HOLSHIP was founded in 1967 under the name Holbæk Shipping & Spedition. The main focus was stevedoring and road freight. Seven years later Kent Ranners began his shipping agent career in the company. His focus was to expand the truck service business area.
In 1985 Kent Ranners took over the company and paved the way for an international approach to the market situation. The following years proved to be vital for the development of the international air and sea freight service. Soon the name HOLSHIP was announced.
‘Global transport – local service’ is the motto for the re-named company. In 1994 a new era began with offices in the UK, Norway, Sweden and Finland and with the development of complementary services like warehousing and other third-party
