GlobalTranz Closes Acquisition of AFN Logistics
GlobalTranz Enterprises, Inc., a leading technology-driven third-party logistics (3PL) solutions provider, today announced that it has closed its previously announced acquisition of AFN Logistics, an award-winning leader in freight brokerage, 3PL and transportation management services. The acquisition further accelerates GlobalTranz's growth and market leadership in the 3PL industry, and creates a company that will exceed $1.5 billion in revenue.

“We are excited to welcome the AFN team and to combine the unique strengths of both companies,” said Bob Farrell, chairman and CEO. “AFN, combined with GlobalTranz, creates a powerful 3PL with a market-leading end-to-end logistics tech suite, expansive network of high-quality and dedicated-capacity, and top talent in the industry. Our joint company will further accelerate our ability to provide sophisticated technology and transportation solutions that drive operative and competitive advantages for our customers.”

AFN Logistics is GlobalTranz’s seventh acquisition since January 2017, expanding its footprint and capabilities with Greensboro-based SynchOne, LLC, Dallas-based AJR Transportation, Salt Lake City-based Apex Logistics Group, Milwaukee-based Global Freight Source, Minneapolis-based Logistics Planning Services, and Richmond-based Worthington Logistics.
