Matt Silverberg - CEO of Associated Couriers Inc.
“We are delighted to work with the Vision Logistics business and look forward to the exciting opportunities that this will bring for us in the coming years. We were keen to incorporate the Vision business into our network, as it fits as an independent provider with specialist knowledge and a great entrepreneurial spirit.
With the acquisition of Vision, we are adding another great market leader in a very promising healthcare logistics segment to our existing leadership portfolio, and we are adding the UK market to the LLG footprint. Over the past 12 months, we have seen an increasing global cross-fertilisation of sectoral knowledge and competencies within the LLG universe – and now Vision will also contribute to boost that development. We are very happy to have them in the family.”
