Scan Global Logistics acquires 2 new companies in Europe

Scan Global Logistics (SGL) has ramped up its European organization and network by acquiring two companies, Gelders Forwarding (Gelders), an air and ocean forwarder and Advection Logistics (Advection), a full-service logistics provider. The acquisitions will significantly scale SGL’s airfreight services and enhance its presence in the technology sector.

Meanwhile, Advection becomes the first SGL office in Hungary and provides a platform for growth in the region. It’s less than a week since SGL acquired Sea-Air Logistics, increasing its presence in China and Hong Kong before putting pen to paper and expanding its European footprint. The signings follow SGL’s ambitious growth and acquisition plan, which so far counts eight acquisitions, including one minority investment in 2022, the company said in a press release.

Furthermore, Advection’s well-established capabilities, competencies and network provide an excellent opportunity to develop further in the region.
