CV International (CVI), a Norfolk, Va.-based freight forwarder and customs broker, has acquired M & S Shipping, Ltd., a Virginia Beach, Va.-based freight forwarder that also provides refrigerated transportation services.
M & S Shipping, Ltd. was founded in 1987 as the U.S. based subsidiary of the London-based M & S Shipping Group, Ltd. to fill the need for a single source logistics firm that could deliver ocean, air, truck and rail shipping services. The entire M & S Shipping staff will be joining the CVI team in Norfolk, Va.
“This was a positive development for both of our companies,” stated CVI president Mike Coleman. “We have known and worked with M & S for a long time. Their business philosophy and unwavering dedication to customer service fits very well with our own.”
“We are looking forward to joining the CVI team and the expanded support we will have to service our customer base,” remarked Peter Simmons, M & S Shipping’s president. “This was truly a perfect fit both in terms of maintaining quality service and making the process seamless to our customers.”
