Fjord1 Nordvestlandske A.S. is a Norwegian transport conglomerate.
The company is one of the largest in the Norwegian transport sector. The company itself is a holding company for its numerous subsidiaries.
The company is owned by the county administrations in Sogn og Fjordane (59 %) and Møre og Romsdal (41 %).
Company headquarters are located in Florø; however, the headquarters of the important ferry division is located in Molde.
The company was formed in 2001 by the merger of Møre og Romsdal Fylkesbåtar and Fylkesbaatane i Sogn og Fjordane.
The fact that the company ownership is divided between two different Norwegian counties, and the fact that the company headquarters were located in Sogn og Fjordane, has made the merger somewhat unpopular in Møre og Romsdal. The choice of name, Fjord1, did also not go down well with the local population. These strains on public relations, amongst other things, resulted in talks intended to further the merger process breaking down during the winter and spring of 2004.
