Chicago headquartered SEKO Logistics recently announced they have acquired a majority shareholding in Omni-Channel Logistics, who are currently one of their strategic partners. The new acquisition will help solidify and develop their eCommerce and technology solutions for retailers, pure-play etailers, marketplaces and other platforms.
Managing Director Kai Lincoln and his partners launched Omni-Channel Logistics in Australia in early 2014, and since then both companies have enjoyed a highly successful and growing partnership.
Kai Lincoln will continue to lead the company under the new name of SEKO Omni-Channel Logistics with a key focus on cross-border eCommerce and global eCommerce returns.
Mr. Lincoln had this to say, “As a start-up business in 2014, we recognized the importance of having a reputable global brand behind us. SEKO gave us that credibility and the two-way partnership we have enjoyed since has enabled us to become a global eCommerce force with an amazing team of individuals and a technology platform designed and built for scalable cross-border, marketplace and returns solutions.”
Chief Commercial Officer for SEKO Logistics, Mark White stated, “This is a significant investment for SEKO Logistics and solidifies our relationship with what we see as the industry’s leading cross-border eCommerce team. As we continue to invest in market expansion focusing on cross-border eCommerce and returns, the big winners will be our clients as we continue to push shipping and technology boundaries to a new level for retailers, pure-play etailers, marketplaces and platforms.”
Omni-Channel Logistics Commercial Director for the Asia Pacific region, Justin Irvine added, “We have a great partner in SEKO and this acquisition will be instrumental in assisting SEKO Omni-Channel Logistics’ continued growth in key eCommerce markets around the world.”
SEKO has also entered into a strategic partnership with Hermes Germany that will result in further enhancement of their eCommerce services as each company will combine their competencies for B2B and B2C.
