Denmark Bound: The Burlington Air Express name is headed for Denmark.

The Irvine-based freight forwarder has signed a deal that will result in Inter Express, a Copenhagen-based freight firm, using the Burlington name and handling the network’s Danish freight.

“Burlington seeks out high-profile, service-oriented companies to join its global network of over 490 offices,” said Ray Wilson, Burlington’s chief operating officer in the Atlantic region. “Inter Express more than meets our criteria for a quality partnership.”

Inter Express has operated for 25 years and is one of the 10 largest freight forwarders in Denmark.


In another development for Burlington, the company announced that it has won a $2.6-million contract to haul freight for Conner Peripherals Inc., a maker of computer tape and disc drives. Based in San Jose, Conner purchased tape drive maker Archive Corp. of Costa Mesa last year.

Burlington will ship the company’s products from factories in the Far East to distribution centers in Costa Mesa and Glasgow, Scotland.
