LOS ANGELES and LONDON,

August 26, 2020 – Marlin Equity Partners (“Marlin”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired Unifaun, a leading Stockholm-based cloud delivery orchestration platform. The company’s multi-tenant SaaS platform provides cloud transportation connectivity solutions to carriers, shippers and parcel recipients in the transportation ecosystem, facilitating the delivery of nearly 300 million parcels per year.

“We have created a fully-integrated platform that provides connectivity for constituents across the transportation value chain and improves the delivery experience for all parties,” said Leif Bohlin, CEO of Unifaun. “As we embark on our next chapter of growth, we are delighted to be partnering with Marlin given the firm’s deep understanding of supply chain management, logistics and e-commerce technologies. We look forward to leveraging their expertise to further extend our market-leading position within the Nordics and accelerate the expansion of our global reach to serve new clients internationally.”

“Unifaun’s best-in-class solutions provide vital connectivity to the European logistics value chain, solve measurable transportation challenges, deliver significant cost savings, and improve efficiency and capacity utilization,” said Peter Chung, a managing director at Marlin. “We are thrilled to partner with Unifaun and continue to invest in its market-leading solutions both organically and through strategic and complementary acquisitions.”

“The company’s platform is highly differentiated due to the network effects of its longstanding shipper and carrier relationships, and we believe it is uniquely suited to capitalize on the secular tailwinds underpinning e-commerce growth,” added Mike Wilkinson, a principal at Marlin. “We look forward to supporting the company in the next stage of its evolution.”
