Parcel, haulage and freight firm Caribou is continuing its acquisition drive with the purchase of Swindon-based Six Ten Logistics.

This latest acquisition closely follows the company’s purchase of Prestwich haulier C&D Transport Solutions in January this year and Lincolnshire County Couriers in Grantham at the end of last year. The firm also has plans to open a new depot in Colchester, creating an additional 20 jobs.

The company said the white glove delivery and distribution company, which is a member of Pall-Ex, will bring its experience in the UK and pan-European pallet distribution trade and retail sector as well as its track record in dealing with the rapid changes in retail demand, needs and preferences – especially during the pandemic - enabling Caribou to “craft strategies that will personalise and streamline logistics experiences for retail businesses”.

Caribou MD Daryl Dylan added: “‘We are absolutely delighted to welcome the Six Ten Logistics team into the rapidly growing Caribou family.

“This was a very natural move for us, with Six Ten Logistics not only sharing our own vision for the future of UK and international logistics, but also demonstrating a forward-thinking approach and communicating a desire to drive industry-wide change that we are only too happy to support."

The logistics company integrates with several channels and marketplaces including Amazon, Shopify, OnBuy, Cloud Commerce Pro, WooCommerce, eBay, Linnworks, MetaPack, Mintsoft, CSVuploader, PrestaShop, and StoreFeeder to offer a range of logistics services.

These include freight forwarding, air freight, sea freight, and road freight services; domestic parcel and pallet networks; storage and warehousing; haulage; and same-day service.
