MISSISSAUGA, ON – Manitoulin Global Forwarding has purchased MAP International Freight, an international logistics company that specializes in temperature-controlled cargo.

“You need a highly trained technical specialist in this business that understands and executes on the many intricacies involved in getting temperature-controlled freight safely and securely to its destination in its expected condition,” says Dwayne Hihn, president of Manitoulin Global Forwarding, which has offices in Toronto, Montreal, Regina and Edmonton. “With the acquisition of MAP International, Manitoulin Global Forwarding is now that provider.”

Gord Smith, Chief Executive Officer of the Manitoulin Group of Companies, added that the company culture and approach to customer service was also a fit. “We were as impressed with MAP’s technical capabilities as we were with its reputation in the industry for customer service,” he said.

MAP International was founded in 1991.
