The load carrier expert PAKi Logistics will continue the business of vPOOL pooling and logistic division on February 1st, 2019. The acquisition guarantees the continuation of existing business relationships and offers a wider range of products and services to customers.

The pooling expert PAKi, part of the Dutch Faber Halbertsma Group, announced today that it has acquired the pooling business of the German vPOOL group. The new company will operate under the name vPOOL Logistics GmbH and will continue to operate the load carrier accounts of customers and partners. All balances will be retained. Employees of the pooling activity will be transferred to the new company and will remain at the location in Wörnitz. The current vPOOL-team will continue to offer a reliable and flexible service to their customers.

Christian Agasse, Managing Director of PAKi Logistics, points out: “The pooling division of vPOOL for E meatboxes and H1 pallets is an ideal addition to our product portfolio, with which we can expand and strengthen our position in the meat processing industry and benefit from high synergy effects in sales. We are delighted to welcome a highly qualified and experienced team to the PAKi family. It not only brings many years of premium customer care and a great deal of know-how, but it also fits in perfectly with our corporate philosophy, based on high standards of quality and sustainability”.

“The takeover is good news in every respect,” says Heiko Dagenbach, Managing Director of vPOOL. “A strong partner like PAKi does not only grant our customers access to a more comprehensive range of products and services than before, but also to a Europe-wide logistics network. We are pleased that our new partnership has also secured the existing jobs and that our employees have a long-term perspective in a financially strong company”.
