LV Overseas is an international freight forwarding player specialized in the design and organization of door-to-door logistics solutions. The group offers a full range of services tailor-made to each stage of the supply chain, with a specific know-how in grouping and niche expertise. Its unique historical positioning in the French overseas territories’ sea connections was progressively broadened to other geographies thanks to the acquisitions completed under 21 Invest France’s tenure.
Acquisition of Fauveder | France
Founded in 1977, Fauveder is an expert in temperature-controlled international transport, primarily for the food industry.

Nearly 110 employees located all over the French territory contribute to delivering a recognized tailor-made service, which generates sales of 85 million euros, growing steadily each year.
The merger between the two entities allows the LV Overseas group to add new transport expertise to its range of services, and also to benefit from strong commercial synergies.
