At a time when the majority of freight transports from Europe were transported by rail, Nortrail - Norsk Trailer Express AS was founded on the 1st of July 1967 by Rolf Lorentz Kamsvåg. As one of the very first pioneers, Nortrail established itself on the Norwegian market with transport routes based on trailer transports between Norway and Germany. Through innovation and fast transit times, Nortrail quickly became one of the market leaders in freight transport between the two countries.
