Air cargo data platform Nallian has acquired pharma logistics consultant 4Advice as it looks to expand the range of services it can offer.
Nallian said that the acquisition meant the Belgium-based consultant would be able to provide its clients with tools to “continuously monitor the chain once process improvements have been put in place, and to execute those processes efficiently”.
“We’re thrilled to join the Nallian family,” said Bert Elsen, managing partner of 4Advice. “Our teams were working already on very similar clients, and we always felt that we could do more for our clients if we worked closely together. With this acquisition, we can finally make this a reality.”
Nallian chief executive Jean Verheyen added: “We look very much forward to complementing 4Advice’s consultancy with the digital tools to sustain these improvements, and to leveraging 4Advice’s deep domain know-how in order to sharpen Nallian’s product portfolio for pharma cargo. In the end, we want to bring the best possible independent platform to the market, as seen from the perspective of pharma shippers.”
4Advice will continue to operate under its own brand.
