PRESS RELEASE – CALGARY, AB

FMi Logistics – Ground Sea Air International Forwarders Inc. (GSA) A STRATEGIC MERGER PROVIDING A FULL SUITE OF INTERNATIONAL FREIGHT MANAGEMENT SERVICES

FMi Logistics Incorporated, a Western Canadian based 3PL with core disciplines in Commercial Warehousing & North American Freight Management has acquired GSA International Forwarders – a Calgary-based International Freight Forwarder specializing in Ocean, Air and Ground transportation.

FMi is bullish on Canadian Economic recovery and Global Trade growth, considering this a strategic expansion to its overall Freight Management group, positioning FMi as a full-service Global Freight Management team.

FMi will integrate the GSA team while keeping the strong GSA name and reputation operating in its Calgary Corporate Headquarters. Todd Larsen, Chris Breneol founding partners of GSA and their team will be instrumental to the continued excellence of their past business relationships while integrating both companies service offerings.

Todd Larsen and Chris Breneol bring to FMi’s existing team of professionals, a wealth of Freight Forwarding and Transportation industry experience. The partners founded GSA in 1996 and previous to that enjoyed individual successful careers with many of Canada’s leading International Freight and Transportation providers.
“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”.

Darryl Stanier founded the FMi Logistics group in 1996 with 2 staff, and its first warehousing service opening in 2001 with a 1500 square foot bay. The FMi organization now provides Commercial Warehousing and Freight Management services on a large scale throughout Western Canada with strong agencies and partnerships in all major Canadian markets. With the addition of GSA, FMi is well positioned to continue its growth as an International Leader of Freight Management services throughout the world.
