ID Logistics announces the acquisition of 100% of GVT Transport & Logistics in the Benelux (turnover of 100 million euros).

This transaction strengthens the logistician's geographical coverage in the Benelux, with six new locations and new first-class customers.

ID Logistics, one of the European leaders in contract logistics, announces the acquisition of 100% of GVT Transport & Logistics, the transport and logistics division of GVT Group of Logistics.

With this acquisition, ID Logistics is actively pursuing its international growth strategy. The Group will consolidate its positions in Europe by creating a key logistics player in the Benelux.

The division named BTT, which offers multimodal container solutions, is not part of the transaction and will remain operated separately by GVT Group of Logistics.

GVT Transport & Logistics manages 12 sites, employs more than 750 professionals, leases 200,000 m² of warehouses and has a fleet of 285 trucks in the Netherlands and Belgium. Its main logistics campus in Tilburg is strategically located close to important ports and airports, and has good accessibility to river, rail, and road transport, for many international manufacturers based in this region. GVT Transport & Logistics serves a diverse client portfolio, primarily international electronics, and non-food distribution companies.
