SEKO Logistics (SEKO), the leader in global end-to-end logistics solutions, today announced the acquisition of Pixior, LLC. (Pixior), a leading 3PL and fulfillment services provider based in Commerce, CA.
With seven locations along the West Coast, and one location in Connecticut, Pixior has become the region’s premier provider of ecommerce fulfillment and retail services, with an emphasis on serving high-end fashion brands.
The acquisition of Pixior brings key ecommerce capabilities in-house to SEKO in the critical West Coast market. These capabilities include high-touch value added fulfillment services that provide a customized brand experience to client customers, for which Pixior offers a truly unique service.
This acquisition also nearly doubles SEKO’s fulfillment and warehouse space in the US and triples SEKO’s existing West Coast space capacity.
In addition, SEKO adds Pixior’s drayage business to increase further the speed and efficiency of its port discharge services.
“With the acquisition of Pixior, we crystallize our industry leadership in end-to-end logistics solutions and take a significant leap forward in our fulfillment capabilities in the US,” said James Gagne, CEO of SEKO Logistics.
“We are operating on a strong growth trajectory and looking for opportunities that allow the company to continue to move at the speed of commerce from anywhere in the world.
“Yassine and the Pixior team have demonstrated their clear ability to execute outstanding service, quickly develop new space and onboard clients in highly constricted markets.
“We believe in what they’ve accomplished and are ready to help the company and its clients grow even more.”
SEKO’s strong global presence will also expand Pixior’s existing offerings, providing clients of the company access to:
• Technology and compliance led value-added freight forwarding capabilities, especially for Asia-US trade lanes
• In-country fulfillment capabilities in key European and Asia Pacific markets to support international expansion strategies
• Personalized last mile ecommerce transportation services
“Pixior has grown substantially since the company was founded more than 20 years ago,” said Yassine Amallal, CEO of Pixior.
“To continue our growth, we needed a partner with the right capabilities and expertise to accelerate and expand what we’ve been able to achieve. SEKO is the right partner.
“We admire the company’s global reputation of being a no-nonsense, hands-on and reliable provider of first-class logistics solutions, just like us. Plus, with their global operations, there is no limit to our customers’ growth potential.”
Following the sale, Yassine Amallal remains as CEO of the business unit, which will ultimately be renamed SEKO Ecommerce Fulfillment.
Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
