  • DSV is seeking to expand in North America and has met with a small group of investors to discuss acquiring C.H. Robinson's worldwide forwarding business, which would offer it key access to trans-Pacific ocean trade routes. The unit might fetch up to $9 billion, the report noted.
  • DSV is currently not interested in acquiring all of C.H. Robinson or its freight brokerage business, the report added.
