UPS has completed the closing of the acquisition of Coyote Logistics, a technology-driven, non-asset based truckload freight brokerage company.

The $1.8 billion acquisition adds large scale full-truck-load (FTL) and other transportation management services to the UPS portfolio. The company expects to benefit from synergies in purchased transportation, backhaul utilisation, cross selling to customers, as well as technology systems and industry best practices.

David Abney, UPS Chief Executive Officer: “Coyote is a transportation and logistics innovator which has changed traditional business models to serve their customers in new, unique and more satisfying ways.

“We will provide our combined customer base with a portfolio of seamless supply chain solutions from multi-modal freight shipments to small-package delivery. We are excited to welcome the talented Coyote team to UPS,” he continued.”
