“Through Todd and Chris’ successful 20-year development of GSA they have consistently delivered high levels of expertise in the areas of Ocean, Air and Land Freight Management”, says President of the FMi Group Darryl Stanier. ‘Development of their business relationships with clients coupled with their unwavering values is a very strong fit with FMi.
“GSA is excited to move forward with this new opportunity as FMi offers a high level of operational services with a very strong focus on client and vendor relationships, aligning closely to the vision of GSA. This strategic acquisition will pair GSA’s knowledge of ground, ocean, and air with FMi’s strong ground transportation and warehousing operations, quote Todd and Chris”.
