Dicom Transportation Group, a provider of business-to-business transportation services, has acquired Orbis Logistics, which will add "final mile" capabilities and a stronger distribution presence in the U.S.
Dicom, based in Montreal, Quebec, continues to execute on its strategy to extend geographic reach across Canada and into the U.S., along with expanding its portfolio of transportation and logistics services. New and existing customers will gain access to strategically located distribution centers and final-mile delivery points, which will particularly benefit large-scale retail and industrial customers.
Orbis operates primarily within the Southeast and into the Midwest U.S. Orbis maintains final mile and cross-dock capabilities in New Orleans, Birmingham, Ala., Lakeland, Fla., and Indianapolis, Ind. Dicom will integrate the Orbis service into its portfolio that includes expedited, regional parcel transportation, less-than-truckload (LTL), full-truckload (FTL), cross-border, and final mile network capabilities.
"The additional capabilities provided by this acquisition are consistent with the focus of Dicom since its beginning more than 40 years ago to provide unique transportation and logistics solutions across a variety of industries" said Dicom CEO Scott Dobak. "Orbis Logistics serves as a perfect final mile complement to our current transportation network in the United States, and we are excited to offer these expanded services for both the Canadian and U.S. based companies."
