The Icelandic shipping company has acquired 90 percent of the forwarding company Extraco Internationale Expeditie B.V. in the Netherlands.

   The Icelandic shipping company Eimskip said Tuesday it has acquired 90 percent of the forwarding company Extraco Internatinale Expeditie B.V. in the Netherlands.
