Spedag Interfreight has strong experience in the energy and infrastructure, aid and relief, oil and gas, and commodities markets. It was purchased from Switzerland-headquartered M+R Spedag Group. Regulatory approvals have been granted by the relevant authorities.

Mathieu Friedberg, ceo at Ceva Logistics, said “With the addition of Spedag Interfreight in East Africa, we are continuing to execute key regional initiatives in our strategic growth plan. This acquisition is the perfect follow-on to our organic growth and M&A activity in Africa over the past two years, as well as the recent acquisitions of Ingram Micro CLS and Colis Privé. Our global scale allows us to offer a wide range of responsive logistics solutions thanks to our experienced local teams.”

The company’s ambition is to make the African market account for a significant share of its revenue by 2025.
