Atlantic Pacific Group welcomed a new member to the family recently, following the acquisition of Freedom Logistics UK Ltd, effective from 19th January 2022.

Freedom Logistics are a Heathrow based international logistics supplier that have predominantly been providing air freight, warehousing and logistics services for 15 years.

Atlantic Pacific Group Chairman – Ashley Nichols – commented “We are delighted to welcome the Freedom Logistics team to our group. Strategically, this is a great fit for all group members, which enables us to extend our air freight services to better support many of our specialist verticals”.

“The experience and specialist knowledge that Freedom provide within the cool-chain sector will be of great benefit to our existing customers, especially the many we have in the Food industry”.

Freedom Logistics Managing Director – Chris Houghton – added ” Joining the Atlantic Pacific Group is a great opportunity for us. Gaining access to the group’s buying power, worldwide network and global service offering, while maintaining our dedicated and personal approach to customers, should open up a host of opportunities for our existing clients”.   

Chris Houghton will continue to lead Freedom Logistics, as he has done since the company was formed in 2007. Atlantic Pacific welcome Chris and his team to the group, and are looking forward to many successful years ahead.
