Spedimex joins forces with ID Logistics. On March 21, the owners of Spedimex Sp. z o. o. concluded an agreement under which ID Logistics, one of the leaders in the logistics industry, will acquire 100% of the company's shares.
ID Logistics, managed by Eric Hémar, is an international contract logistics group with revenue of €2.5 billion in 2022. ID Logistics manages 365 sites across 17 countries representing more than 8 million square meters of warehousing facilities in Europe, America, Asia and Africa, with 30,000 employees.
With a client portfolio balanced between retail, e-commerce and consumer goods, ID Logistics is characterized by offers involving a high level of technology. Developing a social and environmental approach through a number of original projects since its creation in 2001, the Group is today resolutely committed to an ambitious CSR policy.
This strategic acquisition is motivated by the close proximity of cultures and the very similar business models of the two companies: asset light approach, dedicated warehouses, solutions adapted to the specific needs of each operation.

We have a very similar culture and values, in particular the cult of customer proximity and innovation.

We are extremely proud of the international portfolio of brands that have trusted us. The innovative business model and international potential of ID Logistics Group are what I am excited about.
