History

The history of Dantra A/S dates back to 1920, when the company was founded by Martha and Anders Jensen. They laid the foundation stone to what should become one of Denmark’s biggest and leading tank transport businesses.

It started as Hjøllund Vognmandsforretning, with horse-drawn timber carriages from plantations in the Hjøllund area to local sawmills. In 1945, 2nd.-generation took over – Svend Aage Jensen and Ethel, his wife. In the following years they made the company grow rapidly.

In the 70’s their son, Helge Jensen, took seat in the company’s management togehther with his father. Additional focus was set on expansion: development of new business areas, acquiring companies and developing the new main business – tank transports.

Today 4th.generation, Kenneth Jensen, represents the family influence on Dantra A/S which has emerged into a successful, modern and international industry and transport business.

Dantra A/S is one of Scandinavia’s leadin companies in tank transports of liquid products. The customer base includes leading industrial companies within chemicals, technical products, oil / petrol, foodstuffs and food.

The industries in which our customers operate place extensive and restrictive demands on transports in terms of quality, environment, safety, documentation and traceability, training and product know-how.

  • A cleaned tank is of decisive importance for a tank transport. Therefore, each tank cleaning is checked and certified at approved tank cleaning plants, especially with Dantra’s own top modern and approved tank cleaning plant in Hjøllund.
  • The truck fleet is continuously certified and approved at own workshops, where authorized periodic inspection is also performed.
  • Drivers go through so-called Masterdriver training and continously participate in refresher courses.

Dantra A/S has many years’ experience with and knowledge about tank transports of liquid products. During its entire lifetime, the company has succeeded in complying with the key values: safety, stability and precision.

That probably also is the secret behind the company’s very loyal and long-standing customer relationships. Another feature is the company’s vision: We will be our customers’ first choice within tank logistics.

This means, as a matter of course, that the company has been ISO 9001 certified since 1995, and ISO 14001 certified since 2009. Moreover, it is also certified according to SQAS and GMP+ principles and ADR certified for transporting dangerous goods.
