VAUGHAN, ON – The FBI Group has acquired its third non-asset-based freight broker — Consolidated Carriers of Markham, Ontario.

Consolidated employees now join FBI (Freight Brokers International) Group at headquarters in Vaughan, Ontario, while Consolidated owner Wayne McCord will join the team in a sales capacity.

“We’re excited to bring Wayne and his staff into the FBI family,” said John Elisio, senior partner, The FBI Group. “As a small freight broker, they’ve built a track record for personal attention, strong professional connections, and innovative approaches to moving freight by any mode, anywhere in the world. We’re looking forward to introducing their customers to our expanded portfolio of services.”

“The FBI Group understands how small freight brokers work,” McCord said. “This is a great opportunity for our staff and customers to benefit from the economies of scale at FBI while maintaining the relationships we’ve worked so hard to build over the years.”

The agreement closed October 1, although terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The FBI Group was founded in 1992.
