GLS Strengthens Its Footprint in North America


GLS announces the acquisition of Altimax Courier, a prominent air and ground service provider in Canada. 

 With the integration of Altimax Courier, Canadian customers will benefit from expanded coverage and the strengthened capabilities of an experienced integrated parcel and freight player. The addition of Altimax Courier’s network will complement GLS Canada’s existing infrastructure, expanding it to a total of 65 terminals across the country, and providing high-quality services to a broader customer base. 

 This acquisition marks another milestone in GLS’ growth strategy in Canada, following the successful integration of Rosenau Transport in 2021, and Dicom in 2018.  

 Rick Barnes, President GLS Canada, stated: “It is with much excitement that we welcome the entire Altimax Courier team to GLS Canada. Altimax Courier has been our long-standing partner for the past 17 years. We have always appreciated their exceptional commitment to quality throughout the Atlantic Provinces, contributing to their strong reputation in the industry”. 

 Wes Penwarden, President of Altimax Courier, expressed his satisfaction with the acquisition: “I am very happy about this transaction, as it marks a new chapter in our history by becoming part of a fantastic international network. This is an exciting day for our employees, clients, and partners”. 

 GLS is confident that the acquisition of Altimax Courier will further enhance its ability to meet the growing demands of the Canadian market, while ensuring that customers continue to receive exceptional service and support.
