Our story

Carousel was founded in 1986 to tackle a world of service logistics constrained by traditional, static and disjointed services.

The Martin family built a Critical Service Logistics business designed around exceeding customer expectations and needs, with flexible collection and delivery times. Over the last 3 decades, we have invested in technology to provide a highly visible and more accountable service model with Gateway®, our proprietary data-driven digital platform. Growing across Europe, we have expanded air and road networks, acquired LSi and BDA Logistics and broadened capabilities into added value services, including returns management and priority customs clearance.

In March 2022, Carousel welcomed Axcel as lead investment partner and merged with Danish provider DANX to offer in-night solutions for critical logistics across Europe, Nordics and Baltic region, becoming DANX Carousel Group.

From innovation to sustainability initiatives, our primary objective remains on delivering exceptional service to our clients and their customers. That’s why we commit to invest in our teams, technology, and networks, ensuring that our growth trajectory remains strong, driving value where it matters most.

Today, we embody the ‘Whatever it takes, and more’ philosophy of our founders, seeing a world of time-critical services evolving with customer needs and expectations. By putting our clients first, we aim to provide dynamic and sustainable solutions designed around their objectives. As always, we focus on performance and life-critical industries where precision, business continuity and service promise make the difference, supporting the wider DANX Carousel Group’s ambition of becoming the European leader for time-critical, in-night logistics.

Above all, we take ownership, we learn, we care.

DANX Carousel Foundation

In 2023, the DANX Carousel group launched its own funding initiative – the DANX Carousel Foundation. The purpose of the Foundation is to promote the positive social impact of DANX Carousel both within our business and the near communities. The projects and activities supported by the foundation are based on and promotes the group’s three values: Caring, Learning, and Ownership. It primarily supports learning and development initiatives as well as charitable causes and local projects. You can learn more about the Foundation and apply for funds through the application form.
