SEKO Logistics has acquired California-based 3PL and fulfilment services provider Pixior.

With seven locations along the west coast, and one location in Connecticut, Pixior provides e-commerce fulfilment and retail services, with an emphasis on serving high-end fashion brands.

SEKO said the acquisition of Pixior brings key e-commerce capabilities in-house within the US west coast market.

These capabilities include fulfilment services that provide a customised brand experience to client customers.

This acquisition also nearly doubles SEKO’s fulfilment and warehouse space in the US and triples SEKO’s existing west coast space capacity.

In addition, SEKO will utilise Pixior’s drayage business to increase further the speed and efficiency of its port discharge services.

SEKO said its global presence will also expand Pixior’s existing offerings, providing clients of the company access to technology and compliance led value-added freight forwarding capabilities, especially for Asia-US trade lanes; in-country fulfilment capabilities in key European and Asia Pacific markets to support international expansion strategies; and personalised last mile e-commerce transportation services.

Following the sale, Yassine Amallal, chief executive of Pixior, remains as chief executive of the business unit, which will be renamed “SEKO Ecommerce Fulfillment”.

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“With the acquisition of Pixior, we crystallise our industry leadership in end-to-end logistics solutions and take a significant leap forward in our fulfilment capabilities in the US,” said James Gagne, chief executive of SEKO Logistics.

“We are operating on a strong growth trajectory and looking for opportunities that allow the company to continue to move at the speed of commerce from anywhere in the world. Yassine and the Pixior team have demonstrated their clear ability to execute outstanding service, quickly develop new space and onboard clients in highly constricted markets. We believe in what they’ve accomplished and are ready to help the company and its clients grow even more.”

Amallal said: “Pixior has grown substantially since the company was founded more than 20 years ago. To continue our growth, we needed a partner with the right capabilities and expertise to accelerate and expand what we’ve been able to achieve. SEKO is the right partner.”
