FAFE Trans AS was founded in June 2002 by Anne-Grethe and Finn Andre Fredvig-Erichsen. The company first began with deliveries for Tollpost Globe and in 2008, 22 cars were in operation. After we terminated the agreement with TG, we only had 1 car left. This car had deliveries for Bakers. After a of restructuring and a fresh focus, the company has had a positive growth all the way. FAFE AS and its subsidiaries have received 11 Gazelle prices showing good operation and profitableness.
Today we mainly distribute food and piece goods in closed cabinets, and today we have around 40 cars and have a turnover in 2018 for almost NOK 52 million. FAFE AS owned 50% of T. Malo transport AS together with Agnes and Terje Malo. This company was transporting live fish. In January 2018, 100% of the shares were sold to Maritime House AS in Kristiansund. FAFE trans AS cars are equipped with closed cabinets with aggregates, 1, 2 and 3 temperature zones. Cabinets and cars are approved by the respective food transport supervision.
The cars have mostly full side opening and are therefore well suited for other goods driving and xpress shipping as well.
We have cars in size from the van, up to 38 pl wagon trains.
FAFE trans AS aims to be a leader in quality and environment in our district, and during 2019 will only have Euro 6 engines on all cars in daily operation.
Today we have many of the largest national chains as our customers.
In August 2019, we partnered with HAUER AS and HAUER RAUMA AS. This is to be able to serve the market even better and more professionally in relation to, among other things, digitization. The industry also faces major challenges in terms of both price and driver shortages – and by forming a larger union we will be able to more easily strengthen the competitiveness of our companies.
The companies will continue to emphasize being an attractive workplace with a positive and healthy corporate culture.
Our largest customers demand capacity and flexibility from us as a total provider of transport services. These needs will also be more easily met with this organisation of our businesses.
The companies will outwardly be operated under the same name as today – and with the same administrative management.
