Denmark-based global logistics organisation, Scan Global Logistics, has acquired Australian freight forwarding business, Kestrel Freight & Customs, effective 2 July.
The acquisition provides Scan Global Logistics Australia (SGL Australia) with a more comprehensive logistics network across its mining, construction, oil, gas and telecommunication projects.
“I am convinced that Kestrel is a perfect fit to SGL Australia with its complementary business model and customer centric approach,” said SGL Australia Managing Director, Raymond Street.
“Kestrel has demonstrated impressive growth in their core activities and the acquisition will provide us with a wider network and strengthen our services in the Australian market,” he said.
“The acquisition is a very exciting event for both companies, for our customers, our employees and our subcontractors,” said Kestrel Managing Director, Geoff Butcher. “Our companies have worked together frequently in the past and we hold similar values and philosophies on providing our services and developing relationships.”
