DSV - additional information

The Danish company reported increasing revenue from 2010 to 2019, reaching 94.7 billion Danish kroner (or roughly 12.14 billion U.S. dollars) worldwide. From 2015 to 2019, United States, Denmark, and Germany were the most profitable countries for DSV, generating over a third of its revenue in those markets. During this period, DSV expanded its air and sea freight operations progressively, reaching 51 billion Danish kroner (or roughly 7.6 billion U.S. dollars).
