FIDO Spedition & Logistik GmbH The company is located in Leer (Eastern Frisia). I am not sure, but I guess it had to do something with Fisser & van Doornum (FI-DO) Neither am I sure, that the first flag is of FIDO (I just believed the seller) nor am I sure it ist he older one, which I believe due tot he design. I am also not sure whether FIDO really has to do something with Fisser & van Doornum.
