OHL becomes Geodis

September 8 - After being acquired by Geodis in 2015, Ozburn-Hessey Logistics (OHL) has now been fully rebranded under the Geodis name.

"The acquisition, the integration and now rebranding of OHL is a critical step toward our plan to be the global growth partner for our clients," said Geodis ceo Marie-Christine Lombard.

Randy Tucker, president of Geodis Logistics in the USA, added: "From the very beginning, the merger with Geodis made a lot of sense. Many of our US customers have asked us in the past to expand our service capabilities to Europe and Asia. 

"Now as one company with expanded capabilities to leverage across the globe, we can quickly help our US customers expand into new markets. We've also seen a number of Geodis customers in Europe engage with us in the US."
