Ligentia Group, a supply chain technology provider, has bought VGL Solid Group, a Polish-based logistics operator.

VGL offers services in transport, forwarding, logistics and supply chain management. The deal expands Ligentia’s presence on the Asia-Europe and Transpacific trade lanes. VGL founding members, Grzegorz Dobkowski and Marcin Gruchala, will join the Ligentia Group board.

 “This is an exciting day for both Ligentia and VGL Solid customers and colleagues, and a natural extension from our highly successful joint venture, which we have operated together for nearly 10 years”, says Ligentia CEO Nick Jones. “We would like to give a warm welcome to Marcin and Grzeg, the VGL co-founders, and their management shareholders, who all become shareholders in our new combined business.” 

Ligentia was supported in this transaction by Rothschild, DC Advisory, Squire Patton Boggs, KPMG, Roland Berger and Addleshaw Goddard. VGL Solid Group was supported by PwC, GKW, Skadden, Żelaznowski & Głowiński and KPMG
