Eimskip and Arnarlax have reached an agreement on inland trucking to and from the Westfjords of Iceland. Eimskip has a strong position in land transportation and distribution in Iceland with over 130 delivery locations and with extensive expertise in transportation of fresh products.

Arnarlax is a leading salmon farming company in the Westfjords of Iceland which produced 16 thousand tons of fresh salmon in 2022 and is expecting further growth in coming years.

Vilhelm Már Þorsteinsson, CEO Eimskip:
“I am very pleased that Arnarlax chose Eimskip as its partner in inland trucking in Iceland. We have been following the development of salmon farming in Iceland very closely and developed our expertise in servicing the industry both in terms of land transportation and export on board our vessels. This agreement strengthens Eimskip’s position in the domestic market and highlights our strengths in meeting customer requirements in terms of reliability, temperature controlling and traceability in the logistic chain. I look forward to the cooperation with Arnarlax.”

Björn Hembre, CEO Arnarlax:
“Arnarlax see the cooperation with Eimskip as a step in improving our value chain with their professionality and well documented logistic solutions. When we are transporting fresh salmon to our customers it is good to have certainty that the transport is the best way to take care of the quality of our premium Icelandic salmon. We look forward to the cooperation with Eimskip in the years to come.”
