Asesores Legales Baum has advised on the relevant transaction, which generates important operational and commercial synergies and gives rise to a company with aggregate sales of around 38 million euros.
In this way, the ABC Logistic group, based in Santander, reinforces its growth strategy with the acquisition of Bion Logistica y Transporte, specialized in international groupage. The group expects organic growth of between 8 and 10% per year over the next three years. Both companies are expanding their product and customer portfolios.
