AIT Worldwide Logistics Acquires Intelligent Logistics

Supply chain solutions leader AIT Worldwide Logistics recently acquired Austin-based Intelligent Logistics, a firm with expertise in freight forwarding, cartage, warehousing and truckload brokerage. Terms of AIT Worldwide Logistics’ acquisition agreement with Intelligent Logistics were not disclosed.

In business since 2002, Intelligent Logistics also manages the Spur Freight brand and handles nearly 40,000 shipments annually. The acquisition augments AIT’s growing list of global facilities and resources with 70 teammates as well as 143,000 square feet of warehouse space and 40 dock doors across Intelligent Logistics’ two facilities in Austin and San Antonio.

“The experts at Intelligent Logistics treat all freight as time-definite, with a focus on proactive communication that aligns well with AIT’s core value of earning our customers’ trust,” notes Ray Fennelly, AIT’s chief information officer.

Intelligent Logistics’ Tim Miller agreed that the companies’ cultures are a tight match and said his team looks to leverage AIT’s global reach and technology to provide even greater value.

“Since we started almost 20 years ago, we’ve aimed to make cargo transportation simple and reliable so our clients can focus on growing their own businesses,” says Miller. “So, we’re really happy to join forces with an organization like AIT, because they’re not just a global industry leader, but also a company that shares our dedication to clients.”

The Intelligent Logistics deal is the latest in a series of acquisitions by AIT including Multimodal International Ltd. earlier this year, Panther Logistics and Fiege Forwarding in 2020, freight forwarder Unitrans International Corporation in 2019, and food logistics experts WorldFresh Express and U.K.-based ConneXion World Cargo in 2018.
