Gebrüder Weiss is continuing its expansion in the USA with the acquisition of Cargo-Link, based in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Cargo-Link has 15 employees and mainly works in the air and sea freight sectors, and also offers customs clearance services.

It operates a 2,000 square-metre warehouse close to Salt Lake City International Airport.

The acquisition was completed on Thursday 1 February.

Lothar Thoma, Member of the Management Board responsible for the Air & Sea business unit of Gebrüder Weiss, says, “We are continuously consolidating our presence in North America. With Cargo-Link's services, we are targeting the logistics needs of small and medium-sized companies. We will continue to develop Salt Lake City in our network as a starting point for worldwide air & sea transportation with a focus on transpacific and transatlantic transports.”

Gebrüder Weiss has operated in the USA since 2017 and established operations in Laredo, Texas and Miami last year.

Its US headquarters is in Chicago and the other offices are in Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, El Paso, Laredo, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco and now Salt Lake City.
