Scan Global Logistics said that the acquisition provides it with a more comprehensive logistics network that will enable it to establish a stronger position and better serve its customers in the Australian market. 

“I am convinced that Kestrel is a perfect fit to SGL Australia with its complementary business model and customer-centric approach. Kestrel has demonstrated impressive growth in its core activities and the acquisition will provide us with a wider network and strengthen our services in the Australian market” says Raymond Thomas Street, managing director of SGL Australia.
