1988 Started in Norway
Tempo Transport was founded in September of 1988 by Dag Hansen as a three truck, six trailer operation in Norway, just outside of Flatasen. Prior to starting Tempo Transport, Dag Hansen was introduced to trucking and developed his passion for the industry, working for less-than-truckload (LTL) providers ( INSERT YOUR NAME) from 1976 through 1988. When he left to start his own company, he took with him the values of hard work and dedication to service as the founding principles of Tempo Transport.
1999 Expanded its core territory
Throughout the mid to late 1990´s, Tempo expanded its core territory to cover the entire Norwegion region, growing both organically and through acquisition; as well as offering its customers over-the-road truckload and volume LTL services. By 1999, Tempo Transport was operating out of 10 terminals and had finished completion of its current corporate headquarters in Flatsen, Norway. It was at this time Tempo broadened its services by unveiling a non-asset based Logistics division to offer customers European capability through a strategic partner network.
2005 Merge with privately held LTL carrier
In 2005, Tempo Transport announced its intentions to merge with privately held LTL carrier, ???? ????, to offer both customer bases an unmatched network of asset and non-asset based services for both LTL and Truckload.
