Logistics Plus has acquired Ukraine-based freight forwarder Concord-Trans.
Located in Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv, with a second office in Odesa, the purchase includes nearly a dozen in-country logistics professionals specialising in road, sea, and air freight transportation, Customs clearance, and project cargo management.
“Logistics Plus remains committed to supporting Ukraine, and the Ukrainian people whose lives have been ripped apart by this war,” said Yuriy Ostapyak, chief operating oifficer for Logistics Plus. “The activities needed to rebuild Ukraine after the war will be significant. The acquisition of Concord-Trans gives Logistics Plus the additional in-country expertise needed to play a major role in providing the logistics solutions needed to support the long-term rebuilding efforts.”
Logistics Plus already had a significant presence in Ukraine, with an office of nearly 50 people located in Ivano-Frankivsk.
Earlier this year, Logistics Plus established lpukrainerelief.com, which has raised over USD660,000 to help Ukrainian refugees. The company has also been actively working with local organisations to warehouse and transport multiple containers of relief goods to the region.
