Schneider, an Invision portfolio company, invests in Globaltrans

Schneider Group, an international logistics and customs clearance specialist, has acquired a stake in German freight forwarder Globaltrans Internationale Spedition GmbH (“Globaltrans”) as part of its active buy and build strategy. The previous sole owner of Globaltrans remains CEO and shareholder.

Schneider entered the German market in July 2020 by acquiring a stake in apriori transport und logistics GmbH followed by an investment in Mercur Südlogistik Speditions GmbH in July 2021. Globaltrans, headquartered in Düsseldorf, now represents an ideal opportunity to further strengthen Schneider’s position in the German market

The investment in Globaltrans is the ninth acquisition Schneider Group has made to date. In addition to continued organic growth, further complementary acquisitions will be an important pillar for Schneider’s development in the coming years. Respective acquisitions benefit from access to more than 50 locations worldwide, a broad product range in the areas of road, sea and air freight, rail transport and customs clearance, as well as support in the areas of IT and sales.
