SEKO Logistics acquires GoodShip International

In what has been stated to be a ‘transformative year’, SEKO Logistics has acquired Chicago-based forwarder and compliance specialist, GoodShip International. This forms part of SEKO’s attempts to expand its global footprint, establish more strategic partnerships and make acquisitions in the forwarding and technology sectors.

GoodShip International provides customs brokerage, compliance, air and ocean freight solutions to a range of clients with a focus on the Trans-Pacific Eastbound cargo movement. The consultancy serves industries including Aerospace, Automotive, Electronics, FMCG, Healthcare Products, Pharma and Retail.

Adding depth to its service offering, SEKO also hopes to expand the capabilities of SEKO’s Chicago Gateway, which provides support to international shippers, by adding a new level of customs brokerage and compliance services.

SEKO’s President and CEO James T. Gagne commenting on the acquisition said: “2018 has been another strong year for SEKO but after 42 years of organic growth, it is time to enhance our strategy to step up to the next level by working with the right types of strategic partners and undertaking acquisitions to enhance our technology, network and capabilities.”

SEKO Logistics will announce further expansion of SEKO’s Midwest operations in Q2 2019.
