Groupe CAT, the French specialist in vehicle logistics, has bought Sintax Logistica – a major player in vehicle logistics in Spain, France, Portugal and Morocco.
The purchase follows other acquisitions in the past few years, including Toquero in Spain, Trial in France, Fleetpoint in Netherlands, WWL in Germany and Carlson (50 per cent) in the UK.
The deal will also increase the company’s total fleet size, by more than 600 trucks.
Alejandro Forbes, chief executive of Groupe CAT, said: ““This acquisition perfectly fits into the strategy our group has been following for years, which aims to strengthen our leading position in the European market of vehicle distribution.
“We are delighted to welcome the SINTAX staff into Groupe CAT and will begin to work together right away on an integration plan.”
