Scan Global Logistics (SGL) will acquire New Zealand-based freight forwarder Orbis Global Logistics.

SGL said the acquisition, which will come into effect October 5, will significantly strengthen its position in the Pacific region and help it to target significant growth in the coming years.

Allan Melgaard, group ceo of SGL, said: “We are thrilled that Orbis is joining our family, which marks another important milestone in our global expansion plans. The Pacific region remains a key market for SGL in the years to come, where we expect significant growth and see strong demand.”
