TIDEMA was started in 2003 by Niklas Lundgren at the age of 18, who at that time was Sweden's youngest owner of a trucking company. The company then went under the name Niklas Lundgren Åkeri. At the beginning of 2006, the company went from having only one specialization, to having several specializations: transport, mechanics, facility, and with that the company changed its name to TIDEMA AB.
