ACF merges with cargo partner

Associated Customs & Forwarding are extremely pleased to announce our merger with cargo partner Logistics. 

The combined company “ACF powered by cargo partner” will commence from August 1st 2021.

This is a very exciting time for both organisations, our clients and employees. Associated Customs was established in 1972 and its growth and development over the past 49 years has been driven by ACF’s skilled and experienced staff, together with our valued customers’ support.

The merger will create many benefits for both internal operations and clients. We shall be part of the ‘cargo partner group’, a privately owned full-range logistics provider offering a comprehensive portfolio of air and sea international freight, transport, E-com, warehousing and integrated software solutions. Founded in 1983, cargo partner generated a turnover of over one billion euros in 2020 and currently employs 3,250 people worldwide within its comprehensive network of offices around the globe.

This is a merger of two highly compatible logistics companies. Both companies have worked together frequently in the past and we have long-term relationships within our teams. We hold very similar values and philosophies on business, which will enable us to continue to improve our customer experience and service, while also supporting clients with the tools required to improve supply chains.

What it means

We will be able to provide many new services and areas of expertise in the future. We look forward to discussing those in more depth with you. Please be assured that there will be very minimal changes from a day to day operations perspective. There are several things we want to highlight that will not change:

  • You will continue to work with the same people at ACF you have in the past.
  • All of our people are being retained in their current roles.
  • All current rate structures will not change.
  • The services we have provided you in the past will continue to be the same.

We will continue to operate as normal from our current offices. All the contact information for us will remain the same, except our e-mail addresses will change and there will be a new ABN.

We are grateful to you for not only for giving us the opportunity to provide you with your logistics services but for your loyalty and friendships. We are confident that our new affiliation will serve us all well. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
