Swedish Competition Authority fines temperature-controlled transport suppliers for cartelization

The Swedish Competition Authority (Konkurrensverket) found two companies, Frigoscandia AB and the Norrmejerier Cooperative, to have concluded a collaboration agreement in the market for temperature-controlled transport in northern Sweden, from 2011 till 2021, including an agreement to refrain from competing for one another’s customers. Frigoscandia AB reported the breach to the Konkurrensverket and thus, claimed immunity under the Swedish leniency programme. Therefore, Konkurrensverket imposed SEK 7 million in administrative fines on Norrmejerier Cooperative.
