Mullen Group has acquired Canadian third party logistics provider DWS Logistics for an undisclosed sum.
DWS Logistics offers warehousing, distribution, order fulfilment, cross docking, and transloading services.
The firm takes the support of an advanced inventory management system for all the services provided to the customers.
With head office in Mississauga of Ontario, DWS operates distribution centres (DC) in the greater Toronto area and Lower Mainland of British Columbia.
DWS manages more than 500,000ft² of warehousing space with four DCs in Mississauga of Ontario, and one each DC in Delta and Richmond of British Columbia.
The company also offers shared warehousing service, which will help to enter markets quickly without capital investment and economically manage volume spikes.
Mullen Group senior vice president Richard Maloney said: “The VAWD services that DWS provides are a natural extension to our trucking/logistics segment particularly since DWS’ service focus is on the consumer products sector which is a sector that is closely correlated to our regional less-than-truckload operations.
“We will operate DWS as a stand-alone Business Unit and I am pleased to advise that Greg Miller, one of DWS’ former owners, has agreed to stay on with DWS and serve as its president and business unit leader.”
