RS Express is a full-service global logistics provider with a range of value-added services, including in-house customs brokerage, air and ocean freight, and warehousing solutions. Company President, Kevin Hannon engaged Logisyn with the goal of finding a partner with complimentary goals to help RS Express continue building its quality service offerings and expanding its customer footprint.
“I’ve known Kevin Hannon, the owner of RS Express, for over 20 years. Kevin and his team have always been extremely strong on global trade and compliance. He built a profitable and strong business over the decades. When he asked me if we could find a good home for his customers and employees as he started to think about the next chapter, I knew we would have success even in this difficult deal market. Point Global checked all the boxes for Kevin, and there is a lot of synergy in this transaction.” - Cris Arens, Managing Partner at Logisyn
Point Global Logistics will create an ideal new home for RS Express as a US-based freight forwarder, NVOCC, and logistics provider. The company’s global presence includes 15 offices strategically located throughout the USA, China, Brazil, Germany, and the Dominican Republic. This acquisition strengthens both companies’ position in the industry with their synergistic values and future goals regarding customers, technology, and services. This opportunity also extends Point Global’s current US footprint and client base by laying a strong foundation for RS Express to continue thriving.
“Becoming part of Point Global Logistics is a great moment for RS Express. Logisyn found us a great match, as their global presence and resources will increase our service offerings. Synergy will improve our shared culture of focusing on people, technology, and client service.
