Asia: Damco acquires Pacific Network Global Logistics
Damco has been looking to strengthen its overall presence in Australia in the segments where PacNet has been active for some time. Combining forces with PacNet is in that context a very logical step and an almost perfect fit.
By combining forces with PacNet, Damco significantly enhances its platform in the North Asia and Asia Pacific regions. As a result, Damco will gain market leadership positions in retail and lifestyle sectors in Australia and further strengthen its position in airfreight from China to Australia. Customers of PacNet and Damco will receive highly competitive services, increased frequencies and better access to peak capacity in the fast-growing China-Australia trade lane.
“I am happy to be joining forces with PacNet which is another good step forward to further build our global business. PacNet has a high reputation for service in Australia, in the apparel, footwear and retail sectors,” says Damco CEO Rolf Habben-Jansen.
“We are combining two businesses with very aligned strategies, complementary skills, customer bases and geographic strengths, and we have already seen that our cultures match very well, which is an excellent basis to further improve our ability to serve our joint existing and future customers even better,” he says.
The acquisition will strengthen Damco’s forwarding capabilities in Australia, Hong Kong and Mainland China. The customers will benefit from improved service offerings, more comprehensive solutions, new products and access to a strong and growing global network. This will help Damco’s existing customers but also PacNet’s Australian customers as they seek to expand their sourcing from China to the rest of the World.
“We have seen a growing demand for a broader outreach in recent years and we feel that by joining Damco we can provide our customers with a strong global presence,” says Paul Milborrow, CEO of PacNet.
“We will now create a leading freight forwarding business in our region with a market leading position in key industries, enabling us to better cater to the demands our customers are raising,” he adds.
The PacNet senior management team will join Damco, and the existing operations will be run by largely the same people and the same teams, with no disruption to the high level of service all customers are accustomed to receiving.
