JHCI Holdings’s acquisition of essentially all of the assets of G-Link Express Logistics, a Singapore-based forwarding group, strengthens the third-party logistics provider’s Asia services.
JHCI, parent of Jacobson Companies, said it is retaining the offices, operations and services of G-Link’s Express Network in Asia, which will begin doing business as Jacobson Global Logistics, effective as of the date of the acquisition. It did not reveal any of the details of the acquisition.
The acquisition of G-Link allows Jacobson to supplement its existing offerings in Hong Kong and China, as well as expand its capabilities in Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia.
“The integration of G-Link into Jacobson Global Logistics will strengthen our Asia operations and add new country locations to support the expanding service requirements of our customers,” said Brian Lutt, Jacobson’s president and CEO and former president of APL Logistics.
Jacobson, based in Des Moines, Iowa, provides ocean and air freight forwarding, customs brokerage, consolidation, deconsolidation, warehousing and distribution, contract packaging and manufacturing, staffing solutions and transportation management. It operates more than 35 million square feet of warehouse space worldwide with about 7,000 employees.
