Please note: there are two Sehested:
1. "Sehested Transport ApS" est. 2002 in Sunds by Max Sehested.
2. "Sehested Bording ApS" est. 2012 in Bording by Bo Maxwell Sehested.
These two companies have individual CVR-numbers, meaning that they are separate units, not merely branches of the same company.
Trucks from company 1. can be marked in various ways, terms like "Sehested Danmark", "Sehested Transport" and "Sehested Sunds". They can also be recognized by a blue/red logos on the cab sides: a danish flag over a globe.
The main company logo for Sehested Bording looks the same, but it always says "Bording" underneath and the globe/flag logo is missing.
Going up the steep hill leading sw out of Aarhus past Viby and Stautrup. Underpowered and/or heavily loaded trucks often struggle here.
Tip: to locate trucks of particular interest to you, check my collections page, "truck collection" (www.flickr.com/photos/lavulv/collections/72157684190396672/ ) - here you will find all trucks organized in albums, by haulier (with zip-codes), year, brand and country.
Retirement age for trucks: many used trucks are offered for sale on international markets. If sold to a foreign buyer, this will not be listed in the danish motor registry, so a "retired" truck may or may not have been exported. In other words, the "retirement age" only shows the age, at which the truck stopped running on danish license plates.
