geared towards growth in retail, e-commerce and pharma.
Following the acquisitions of Speed-Colli and Forlog in 2015, Distrilog confirms its growth strategy by acquiring 100% of the shares of Colfridis. This acquisition drives the Group's yearly turnover to 172 million euro. 650 employees, 106.500m² and 50 trucks are being incorporated in the group.
The past years Distrilog has invested heavily in developing its retail logistics. By adding dry food in 2013, the segment grew to 40% of total turnover. The Benelux retail is also the focus of Colfridis with a specialisation in temperature controlled logistics (frozen and fresh). Today they are active in logistics and transportation for vegetables, frozen food, chocolate and medical supplies On top of the strengths in cold chain logistics, Colfridis has build a strong reputation in e-commerce and pharma, two segments in which Distrilog has not been active as of today. There is clear integration potential within existing customer base of both companies, but also room for growth in new markets.
Bryan Beutels, Sales director: "Where the last two acquisitions where an expansion of the existing services, this takeover is a structural widening of our core competencies. We have been receiving clear signals from our customers and prospects that there is room for a partner that can offer quality throughout the supply chain regardless of the modality of temperature requirements. Seeing how we are looking for a healthy mixture of segments and services, we view this addition as an important cross road in our further development."
