adlog is the evolution of “Karakostas Transports” which was founded in 1967 and over the years has become one of the leading companies in the sector of land transportation in Greece for conventional and special transports.
Nikolaos Karakostas, the founder of the company, succeeded to form a large and competitive truck fleet serving the Greek industries by bringing together many independent truck operators. In 1974, visionary Captain Nikolaos Paouris formed the first Greek company trading marine fuels and lubricants worldwide. The company expanded to ship-ownership and management between 1980 and 1995 with two sister multipurpose dry cargo vessels of 20.000 tns dwt and three small tankers.
In 2000, their heirs, George Karakostas and John Paouris, established the company “Karakostas Sea & Land Transportation” with the purpose of offering combined transportation solutions by sea, air, road, and railway.
“Kaporo Marine Co.”, was established in parallel time and affiliated in a joint business effort for providing independent and complex logistics solutions.
By the end of 2020, newborn company adlog – “Advanced Logistics Services & Trading” was established. At that point Costas Karakasis and Taxiarchis Krikas joined the team as experienced executive members in operations of large projects and at diverse industries. They both enriched the team with precious know-how in the fields of supply chain management, commercial transaction practices, and project management background.
On Feb. 2021, Lefteris Toumbexis joined the team. With his many years of experience in transacting with the public sector, he undertakes the demanding task of licensing and security, as well as the management of adlog’s office in Northern Greece.
