“Sky is a great extension of our geographic footprint,” said Barry Cox, president of WSI. “The company provides greater density for us in key markets and, very importantly, it provides a meaningful expansion of capabilities across the border, which will enable us to better meet the needs of our customers. The acquisition also adds depth to our management bench.”
Sky CEO Albert Luna will remain in his position post-acquisition. “WSI and Sky have very similar cultures — where safety and customer satisfaction are pivotal to our value proposition. The enhanced set of services and scale that WSI provides will rapidly accelerate our strategic objectives,” said Luna.
WSI operates in 19 states and Canada, manages more than 20 million square feet and employs more than 4,000 people. It has three business segments: third-party logistics, freight brokerage and transportation.
