Logwin strengthens its network in South America

Logwin has acquired all shares in Logwin Air + Ocean Chile S.A. from the previous minority shareholders.

Grevenmacher (Luxembourg) / Aschaffenburg (Germany) – Entrepreneurial engagement in South America: the international logistics service provider Logwin has acquired all the shares of the previous minority shareholders in the national organisation in Chile. The acquisition means that Logwin is now the sole owner of Logwin Air + Ocean Chile S.A. and will now systematically expand its activities in Chile further. Eduardo Vergara, one of the previous minority shareholders, will stay with the company as Managing Director.

Logwin has enjoyed strong growth in Chile since launching its national organisation there in 2007. The company provides reliable logistical services for customers in manufacturing industry as well as in the constantly growing consumer goods sector. Its services include intercontinental air and sea transportation (FCL/LCL) from and to Europe and Asia, transport and logistics services in South America and complex intercontinental project logistics. For example, Logwin transported machine parts weighing a total of 360 tonnes by air freight charter from Sweden to Chile on behalf of a long-standing customer.

“We want to continuously expand our South American network and thus continue our successful development on this market,” says Max Bernaldo, Managing Director Americas at Logwin. “Chile plays an important role in this context.”

The national organisation is closely linked to Logwin's global network of locations. The company currently employs over 4,300 people, operates in all main markets worldwide and has over 200 locations on six continents. Logwin has had a presence in the growing economic regions of South and Central America with its own subsidiaries in Brazil, Mexico and Chile for many years.
