Both companies work within the wine, beer and spirit sectors with JF Hillebrand specializing in containerized freight and 3W Logistik focused on intra-europe groupage services and road freight.
The acquisition of 3W Logistik offers both businesses the means to grow and better support their customers.
Tilo Raab, managing director of JF Hillebrand Germany, said: “3W’s services are very complementary to the services JF Hillebrand offers today and we serve the same customer base. Both Andreas Walsleben, founder and co-owner of 3W and I are very excited to join our efforts, offering both employees and customers new opportunities.”
Cees van Gent, CEO of the JF Hillebrand Group, continued: “This acquisition confirms our strong ambition to grow our business organically and via acquisitions and to extend our service portfolio with road services, both in Europe and the US. We are very happy to welcome the team of 3W Logistik to the Hillebrand family and grow together.”
