We are delighted to announce that John Good Shipping has completed the acquisition of Manchester-based freight forwarding company CBI Transportation UK Ltd. CBI is a well-established and respected business based in Sale, previously owned and managed by Kevin and Pete Fitzgerald.
The company specialises in the Turkish market and is a major player in this key trade lane. In addition, CBI is active on a number of other important trade lanes including the Far East, India and the Black Sea. This is an exciting opportunity for both companies to work together and significantly increases our activities in the all-important North West region. The many synergies will undoubtedly enhance the range of services we are able to offer to our customers.
Whilst Kevin Fitzgerald will retire at the end of January 2013 after a long and successful career in the industry, his son, Pete, will remain with CBI as Managing Director. We very much look forward to welcoming the CBI team into the group and to working closely with them in the future to further grow and develop our forwarding activities.
