Third-party logistics services provider C.H. Robinson Worldwide has acquired certain operating subsidiaries of Transera International Holdings Ltd., a project forwarding company headquartered in Calgary, Canada. Transera is one of the largest privately owned project forwarders in North America, with annual gross revenues of approximately $125m.
Transera, established in 1985, is a non-asset-based global project forwarder providing transportation of "over-dimensional" and heavy-lift shipments. Its customers are primarily in the oil, gas, mining, and wind power industries.
"Transera further expands our international freight forwarding network and brings a greater depth to C.H. Robinson's existing core capabilities," says Jeff Scovill, C.H. Robinson vice president of international. "We work hard to find new ways to serve our customers. Transera will give us broader expertise, providing opportunities to grow existing customer relationships and develop new ones. We look forward to combining their employees' industry knowledge with our network and feel confident we will meet our customers' growing demand for over-dimensional freight shipping."
