I am excited to write the next chapters of the Cerasis story with GlobalTranz.”

With the acquisition of Cerasis, GlobalTranz continues to expand its presence in the Minneapolis area and builds upon the company’s growing managed transportation capabilities.
“Cerasis has a strong history of providing its customers with solutions that help create competitive and operative advantages,” says Renee Krug, chief executive officer of GlobalTranz. “Cerasis will help expand GlobalTranz’s growing managed transportation, final mile and reverse logistics capabilities. The talented team at Cerasis combined with the talented team of agents and employees at GlobalTranz will drive increased differentiation and accelerate growth of our solutions in the marketplace.”
