FedEx Completes Brazilian Logistics Acquisition
FedEx Corp. said it completed its acquisition of Brazilian logistics firm Rapidão Cometa Logística e Transportes S.A.
Terms were not released about the deal, first announced by FedEx in May. Rapidão Cometa generates about $500 million per year in revenue.
FedEx said the acquisition will extend its reach in Latin America and gives its FedEx Express unit access to a ground network of 45 branches, 770 vehicles and trailers.
FedEx earlier this year bought package delivery companies in France in Poland.
FedEx Corp. is ranked No. 2 on the Transport Topics 100 listing of U.S. and Canadian for-hire carriers.
