Sobotram sells Transports Perrier
France-headquartered Geodis Group has acquired Transports Perrier, a provider that specialises in domestic transports of palletised cargo. It is part of the larger Sobotram Group. With its current positioning primarily based on carrying full loads and part-loads, the Geodis road haulage segment now intends to strengthen its service offering in the LTL segment (one to six pallets).
Transports Perrier was established in 1955 and currently operates a fleet of 410 vehicles. It employs 260 people, including 160 drivers.
Located at key intersection points on some of the major transport routes in France, Transports Perrier’s five sites – Lons-Le-Saunier (east), Lunéville (north-east), Noves (south), Seiche-sur-le-Loir (west) and Liévin (north) – will join the the Geodis road network thatcomprises approximately 800 drivers and about a 1,000 vehicles.
