DES PLAINES - DSC Logistics announced it has merged with CJ Logistics USA and CJ Logistics Canada to create a company named CJ Logistics America, LLC.
The company will be doing business as (dba) DSC Logistics in the U.S. through 2020, with plans to rebrand as CJ Logistics starting in 2021.
DSC Logistics completed the transfer of majority ownership to CJ Logistics USA, a subsidiary of CJ Logistics based in Seoul, South Korea, in August 2018. The company is now wholly owned by CJ Logistics Holdings America Corp.
Freight Forwarding will be a division under the combined company and the plan is to integrate Mexico operations soon as well. The company's combined North American platform will include over 70 locations, including warehouses, transportation, freight forwarding and corporate offices, with a combined warehousing footprint of about 30 million square feet.
"Coming together as one company and brand aligns with our vision for a connected customer experience, integrated global solutions and accelerated innovation," said Kevin Coleman, Chief Customer Officer. "Of course the technology CJ brings is very exciting as well, and we are already piloting several applications of TES (Technology, Engineering, Systems & Solutions) across our U.S. network with some early successes."
