VR Group – Acquisition of Recycling Logistics Specialist Transitar

We assisted VR Group in the acquisition of Transitar Oy, a transport company specialising in recycling logistics. The deal strengthens VR Transpoint’s position as an operator in circular economy logistics while expanding its road logistics service and transport network in the recycling industry segment. Transitar will continue its operations as its own company as part of VR Transpoint’s road logistics service area.

‘Investing in the circular economy provides significant support to our company’s sustainability programme. The circular economy is a growing trend that depends on functional logistics. Our goal is to offer comprehensive, competitive and flexible circular economy logistics services to enable our customers to succeed sustainably in their core businesses’, says Senior Vice President Martti Koskinen from VR Transpoint.

Our team, which includes members from several practice areas, advised VR Group in all legal aspects of the acquisition and in drafting the transaction documentation.

Transitar’s turnover is approximately EUR 16 million and the company is one of the largest Nordic companies specialised in recycled materials. The company operates 50 vehicles, 70 trailers and several hundred containers. Transitar was established in 1998.

VR Group is a responsible service company operating in the field of travel, logistics and maintenance that is speeding up the journey towards a healthy and carbon-neutral Finland.
