Rhenus acquires Freight Logistics


Rhenus has acquired Freight Logistics, an international freight forwarder and logistics solutions provider headquartered in Miami, U.S.. Freight Logistics is IATA-accredited and a licensed Non-Vessel Owning Common Carrier (NVOCC). It operates its own consolidation hub located near Miami International Airport, and has offices in Argentina, Brazil and Chile. After recent acquisitions in Brazil and Canada and the acquisition of Freight Logistics, Rhenus Air & Ocean is strengthening its presence in the Americas.

Freight Logistics was founded in 2001 with the aim of providing international transportation and fulfilment services to manufacturers, distributors, systems integrators and resellers of high technology products in the U.S. and Latin America. Today, the company specialises in supply-chain solutions, international transportation (air & ocean), customs brokerage, compliance, warehousing and distribution. The current management team and all its employees in the region will remain with the company, even after the acquisition.

Rhenus’ focus is on high tech and IT, including the development of its own proprietary IT software and warehousing management system infrastructure, mobile applications, implementation and integration services.

“The acquisition of Freight Logistics is an important step for us in expanding our business activities in the Americas region and follows our latest acquisition of Rodair in Canada in the beginning of 2019. These steps enable us to consolidate our network there and to serve both North America and the Latin American region from Miami as our new gateway. This will help us live up to our goal of being globally oriented and we can establish more links between the continents,” said, Jörn Schmersahl, CEO of Rhenus Air & Ocean Americas.
