Our History

The history of the ITD Group started on 19 June 1948 when FDE opened its first office in a backyard in Copenhagen. FDE was an abbreviation of ‘Foreningen af Danske Eksportvognmænd’, which in English means the ‘Association of Danish Export Hauliers’. The foundation took place due to our interest in export and a need for assisting the transport industry.

As the export industry grew, so did we and moved to Krusaa, near the Danish-German border, in order to handle the large number of trucks in the export industry who needed assistance with the necessary papers before continuing to Germany.

In 1978, the new Danish-German motorway border crossing in Froeslev west of Padborg opened. Therefore, we moved again to larger locations in order to attend to the increasing commercial activities.

As an association, FDE was busy providing the members with relevant information regarding international transportation. This also implied that FDE became forerunner within international transport and could provide its members with an electronic information system, now available online. FDE continued to develop its knowledge bank regarding environment and logistics, drivers’ hours, dangerous goods and joined several development projects.

In 1999, the activities were divided into association activities and commercial activities. FDE kept the commercial activities while the association changed its name to International Transport Danmark (Association for the Danish road transport of goods), referred to as ITD.

In 2004, FDE and ITD to our new headquarters in Padborg. Its location is strategically placed near the motorway and the Danish-German border where the majority of all truck traffic to Denmark passes every day.

In 2012 our owner, ITD, bought 80 percent of VIALTIS Sarl in France. With the purchase of VIALTIS, the ITD Group became locally represented across most of Europe.

Spring 2019, ITD bought the remaining 20 per cent of the shares in VIALTIS SARL, and ITD now owns the entire share capital.
