Our story

We are a family-owned company based on responsibility and common sense. It’s been that way since 1975 when Per Nelson Ørnstrand (PNO) founded the company. The next generation of the Ørnstrand has now taken over, and today PNO is fully family owned by Lee Ørnstrand.

Just like his father, Jacob believes in long-term customer relationships based on trust, and the importance of taking responsibility as a company – not only in relation to our customers, but also towards the environment and our employees.

PNO has the Nordics’ largest range of short and long-term trailer rentals. Our head office is located in Copenhagen, and we have branches in Helsinki, Oslo, Hamburg, Helsingborg, Horsens, Venlo and Poland. 

But as we grow, we’ve never lost touch with the values on which our company has been founded.

The leadership

A hello from PNO’s leadership team. Meet the owners Jacob & Solvej, COO Thomas and CCO Pauli.

Why PNO?

We have the Nordic’s largest standard and specialty trailer fleet for short and long-term rental. Whatever you need, you’ll find it at PNO.

Flexible rental

Why own trailers you don’t use, when you can rent instead?

From short-term to long-term, we give you the freedom to scale your fleet as your needs change, without large any upfront payments or having unused, under-utilised trailers.

Fast response

Business moves fast. And the last thing you want is to wait weeks for your rental partner to provide you with a quote.

That is why our flat business structure has been designed to be fast-moving and agile. It’s all about acting quickly so you can get what you need fast, and get on with business.

Leading innovation

The logistics industry is changing. You want a rental partner who is changing with it.

PNO Ventures is our in-house innovation hub dedicated to developing new ways to add value to customers. With one eye on the future, we are always looking for new ways to create greater efficiency and a better experience for our customers.

Personal service

As a family-owned and run business, we pride ourselves on providing a personal touch.

That’s why at PNO, every customer gets their own dedicated account manager, as well as the added support of a skilled and experienced team.


Sustainability is here to stay. And with increasing regulation and compliance pressure, you must be ready for the transition to sustainable freight.

With a deep commitment to sustainability, PNO is at the forefront of that transition. Get the sustainable edge for your business with PNO.
