Rotra sells road & warehousing activities to continue independently with air & ocean division

Member News

Dear fellow SCN members,


Yesterday we announced that Kuehne + Nagel has acquired Rotra’s business units for road & warehousing. For you there will be zero changes, our current service offering will remain the same. In the past we divided our attention over air, ocean, road and warehousing. From now on we will fully focus on our air & ocean activities and completing the process of becoming a digital forwarder.


We decided to specialize at this specific moment because we are confident about an independent future for Rotra Air & Ocean. We are currently changing into a digital forwarder: 110 years of logistic experience in combination with the latest technologies. Through the sale of the other business units we create more possibilities to invest in our air & ocean activities and our digital platform: RotraNext.


With our renewed website and RotraNext we digitized the total booking process for air & ocean clients and partners. You can book and track & trace your shipments and visualize statistics; free of charge. Efficiency and transparency guaranteed. Through connection with an API you can even receive all information in your own system.



We are looking forward to continue our cooperation with all of you. May you have any further questions, please contact Mr. Sander Loois at or +31-20-6588717.
