Geodis Wilson buys US logistics firm

Geodis Wilson has strengthened its position in the US market by taking over domestic transport firm One Source Logistics.

The acquisition is the first step in a strategy of growth in the US. 

Jean-Louis Demeulenaere, chief executive officer, said: “Our aim is to, at least, double our freight forwarding business in the US within the coming 5 years, based on external and organic growth.” 

The group recently established a 4PL product, employs 1,400 people, and reported revenue of some 750 million euro in its Americas’ region over  2010.

One Source Logistics, based in Minneapolis, has a network of transport, logistics and distribution services throughout the United States, which is now connected to Geodis Wilson’s global freight services.
