NIBC Investment Partners announces the sale of B2C Europe to MaerskNieuws -
NIBC Investment Partners is proud to announce the exit of Dutch E-logistics provider B2C Europe. Together with the other shareholders, NIBC Investment Partners has sold B2C to listed Danish shipping company A.P. Moller-Maersk. B2C Europe has found a partner in Maersk and sees a very strong fit between their services and Maersk’s ambitions within e-commerce, which will allow the two companies to jointly further drive and support their customers’ growth plans and market development goals.
After supporting B2C with growth capital in 2015, NIBC Investment Partners became a minority shareholder in 2016 to further align with management’s growth ambitions. As a result, B2C has been able to successfully build its business and to strengthen its position as a leading provider of international logistics services to the E-commerce market.
NIBC Investment Partners’ Managing Director, Frans van der Harst: “We, as a financial partner, are happy to have been able to support B2C Europe in its growth ambitions over the last few years. Through this partnership with Maersk, employees and customers of B2C Europe will benefit from Maersk’s global reach, strengthening the overall positioning. We are confident that B2C Europe and Maersk are the right match and will successfully grow together.”
