TransGroup and Scan Global Logistics (SGL) become one organization under one name: Scan Global Logistics. The brand transition is a natural step towards a stronger global presence and will provide customers access to an extensive logistics network.
The rebrand is in complete alignment with SGL’s ambitious and renowned strategy to integrate competitive and agile companies into the family. TransGroup’s 525 full-time employees and 43 offices in the USA and Canada will now operate under the SGL name.
The global executive leadership team will consist of Global CEO Allan Melgaard and Global CFO Claes Brønsgaard Pedersen. The North American leadership team is represented by Julien Ranzato, COO International Services, and Bill Goodgion, COO Domestic Services.
Allan Melgaard, Global CEO, explains the significance of becoming one brand “TransGroup and Scan Global Logistics have been one family legally since early 2016. Now, we integrate all of our global activities under one brand, one organization, and one executive leadership team. Becoming one global company makes working with us easier and our business operations more efficient, all to the benefit of our customers. As one brand, we will keep uncomplicating the world.”
Moving to a single brand will more accurately reflect the strength of the global organization and the current network of 120+ offices spanning six continents. Joining forces under one name will increase the market position for SGL.
Bill Goodgion, North American Chief Operating Officer - Domestic, expands on the benefits “In an increasingly competitive market, having access to the right contacts and contracts worldwide are pivotal. Operating under two names has caused confusion for some customers. Now, they will experience uncomplicated access to all our global service offerings and fully benefit from our extensive network.”
Julien Ranzato, North American Chief Operating Officer - International, agrees “Our customers will get the best of both worlds. Becoming a single brand will allow us to leverage our strengths and innovate in new and exciting ways. Indeed, by aligning ourselves internally, we can extend a more collective, global approach.”
With the entire logistics family under the SGL name, the ambition to become one of the leading logistics and transport providers worldwide is a step closer.
“Many are familiar with the SGL brand. As one brand, we will increase our global presence while continuing to build strong local relations and staying true to our ‘can-do-attitude’ to simplify logistics solutions,” said Allan Melgaard, Global CEO, finishes.
