The acquisition and integration of Spanish logistics services provider Spain- Tir by Schenker is now complete, resulting in a network of 72 new locations for procurement and distribution on the Iberian Peninsula, the group said recently.

“By linking Spain-Tir’s strong national network and its international transport operations with the closely linked transport network of Schenker, we are giving our customers a clear competitive advantage,” emphasizes Hans-Jörg Hager, Schenker’s Member of the Board with responsibility for European land transport.

“Our customers can now benefit from improved end-to-end services in Europe, from Portugal right through to Siberia and from Finland to Sicily, all from a single source. This means we are continuing to expand our leading position in European land transport even further.”

The integration of Spain-Tir with Schenker and further development of the Spanish organization, which has more than 1,500 employees, will be directed by a board of managers drawn from both companies.

This is presided over by Lluís Gay i Mundó, who combines the roles of Chairman of Spain-Tir and President of the new company Schenker Iberica SA.
