EFS Global has acquired Courier Connections (Scotland) Ltd which provides distribution and haulage logistics services and has depots in Perth, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The Burnley-based business is growing rapidly through acquisition and now has 17 depots and offices across the country. It operates its own UK and European road freight fleet, whilst also being able to facilitate a vast range of worldwide import and export services (including customs clearances). 

Mark Jones, managing director of EFS Global, said: "The acquisition of a Scotland-based entity is an exciting development for the business and will, I’m sure, be a springboard for future growth as we continue our expansion strategy across the UK."

The corporate team at Davis Blank Furniss, which was led by Sonio Singh, advised EFS Global on all aspects of the transaction including legal due diligence and transactional matters. The team also included Lauren Sever, corporate, commercial and employment solicitor; and Andy McNish who is a corporate and commercial partner.

Sonio Singh added: "Once again we were pleased to advise the EFS Global team secure a major strategic acquisition as it continues to bolster its reach."
