The agreement to buy the South American companies, which export perishables to the U.S., Europe and Asia, extends the Swiss freight forwarder’s perishables network.

 

   Swiss-based freight forwarder Panalpina announced Wednesday it has agreed to acquire Colombian company CargoMaster S.A. and its subsidiary Laseair S.A., which is located in Ecuador.
    The financial terms were not disclosed for the agreement, which was reached Tuesday, Panalpina said.
    CargoMaster, founded in 1987, specializes in the air freight export of perishables, including flowers and fruit, and moves 9 million boxes a year, according to its website. CargoMaster and Laseair export to the U.S., Europe and Asia.
    “We are adding significant volumes and know-how to our already impressive perishables footprint in Latin America, which will allow us to further deepen our well-established relationships with the airlines and producers in the region,” said Panalpina CEO Stefan Karlen in a statement. “As we continue to expand the perishables business in this part of the world, we also see great development opportunities for our Charter Network with its gateway in Huntsville, Alabama.”

   Panalpina’s perishables activities originated in Latin America before extending to Europe and Africa and spans 30 countries, the company said.
   

We want to see meaningful changes in China’s trade practices, but it makes no sense to punish Americans as a negotiating tactic. If the administration wants to put more pressure on China, it should form a multinational coalition with our allies who share our concerns.

Spot container rates from Shanghai to Rotterdam stood at $1,426 per FEU as of May 23, down 2% year-over-year, according to Drewry’s World Container Index.
