Kuehne + Nagel, one of the world’s leading logistics solutions and air freight service providers, today announced the extension of its perishables logistics network via its acquisition of Perishable International Transportation (PIT). 

“Following the general expansion of our perishables logistics business in Australia, Europe and South America, the acquisition of Perishable International Transportation allows us to grow these activities in North America”, said Tim Scharwarth, Executive Vice President Air Logistics, Kuehne + Nagel International AG.

PIT has handled and transported fresh and frozen perishable goods via since 1991. It is currently located at Vancouver International Airport allowing it to take advantage of later cut-off and shorter transit times, which are particularly important for the transport of fruits and vegetables.

Schawarth hopes that the purchase will benefit its air freight services, particularly in the Canadian market.
