C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc., Eden Prairie, Minn., has agreed to acquire freight forwarder Apreo Logistics SA.
The Warsaw, Poland-based company was founded in June of 2007 and provides truckload services including dry van and temperature controlled liquid and dry bulk capabilities, according to a news release.
Acquiring Apreo is the latest in a series of moves from C.H. Robinson in Europe. The company has recently named Bryan Foe president of C.H. Robinson Europe and opened an office in Rotterdam, Holland.
“This acquisition expands C.H. Robinson’s presence in Europe and supports our goals to strengthen our capabilities in our core business and further diversify our modal offering, both of which benefit our European and global customer base,” Foe said in the release.
Arkadiusz Glinka, current Apreo chief executive officer, will continue in a similar role going forward.
The closing of the transaction is conditional on clearance from the Polish Office for Competition and Consumer Protection, according to the release.
