Scan Global Logistics Folds in TransGroup Brand
Global Logistics (SGL) and TransGroup become one organisation under one
name: Scan Global Logistics. The brand transition is a natural step
towards a stronger global presence and will provide customers access to
an extensive logistics network.
The rebrand is in complete alignment with SGL's ambitious and renowned
strategy to integrate competitive and agile companies into the family.
TransGroup’s 525 full-time employees and 43 offices in the USA and
Canada will now operate under the SGL name.
The global executive leadership team will consist of Global CEO Allan
Melgaard and Global CFO Claes Brønsgaard Pedersen. The North American
leadership team is represented by Julien Ranzato, COO International
Services, and Bill Goodgion, COO Domestic Services.
Allan Melgaard, Global CEO, explains the significance of becoming one
"TransGroup and Scan Global Logistics have been one family legally since
early 2016. Now, we integrate all of our global activities under one
brand, one organisation, and one executive leadership team. Becoming one
global company makes working with us easier and our business operations
more efficient, all to the benefit of our customers. As one brand, we
will keep uncomplicating the world."
Moving to a single brand will more accurately reflect the strength of
the global organisation and the current network of 120+ offices spanning
6 continents. Joining forces under one name will increase the market
position for SGL.
Bill Goodgion, North American Chief Operating Officer - Domestic,
expands on the benefits:
"In an increasingly competitive market, having access to the right
contacts and contracts worldwide are pivotal. Operating under two names
has caused confusion for some customers. Now, they will experience
uncomplicated access to all our global service offerings and fully
benefit from our extensive network."
Ranzato, North American Chief Operating Officer - International, agrees:
"Our customers will get the best of both worlds. Becoming a single brand
will allow us to leverage our strengths and innovate in new and exciting
ways. Indeed, by aligning ourselves internally, we can extend a more
collective, global approach."
With the entire logistics family under the SGL name, the ambition to
become a leading logistics and transport provider worldwide is a step
"Many are familiar with the SGL brand. As one brand, we will increase
our global presence while continuing to build strong local relations and
staying true to our 'can-do-attitude' to simplify logistics solutions,"
Allan Melgaard, Global CEO, finishes.
