IDS Acquires Aspen Logistics

Integrated Distribution Services (IDS), Plainfield, Ind., acquired Aspen Logistics, Salt Lake City, Utah.

The addition of Aspen Logistics provides IDS a key hub to build on an already expanding intermodal consolidation service, including temperature-controlled LTL pool distribution services for the intermountain region through IDS-owned assets and brokerage division.

"The acquisition of Aspen Logistics enhances our overall e-fulfillment and transportation strategies. Salt Lake City continues to grow as a key logistics hub, and the combination of IDS and Aspenopens up a larger customer base for both locations to serve and provide geographic flexibility to meet the needs of both current and new customers. This is a great opportunity to add a well-respected and well-run group to the IDS family where both companies complement each other and provide a springboard for greater successes in the future," says Mark DeFabis, president and CEO of IDS.
