Global Critical Logistics (GCL) has acquired two New Zealand forwarders, Auckland-based Time Frame Logistics and Wellington-based Xtreme Forwarding.
Time Frame will have its assets and business fully integrated into GCL’s Rock-it Global and will be newly branded as Rock-it Global New Zealand.
Xtreme Forwarding will continue operating under its current brand alongside Dynamic International, another GCL company serving film and TV customers.
“Acquiring these two New Zealand companies with capabilities across our core end markets strengthens our geographic footprint in a key cornerstone of the Asia-Pacific region, while also giving us direct access to local customers seeking to grow beyond their home markets,” said Daniel Rosenthal, President and Chief Executive Officer, GCL. “We are constantly evaluating strategic opportunities to grow the business, enhance our value proposition to customers, and expand our service offerings across the world.”
“We have worked closely with Rock-it Global as a partner and supplier for decades, and joining the family to support Rock-it Global’s efforts in New Zealand is an exciting step for our team,” commented Founder and General Manager Mark Selwood, who will continue to lead Rock-it Global New Zealand. “This partnership will further allow us to leverage a global network and shared resources for our existing customers, while continuing to deliver critical solutions in New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region.”
Steve Rowland, Founder and Managing Director, Xtreme Forwarding, added:
“We are pleased to be joining the GCL family and look forward to working more closely together with the team in the coming years. Importantly, this move will allow our teams to leverage a global network of specialists to serve our clients more efficiently and on a broader geographical scale.”
