MNX Global Logistics has acquired Australian forwarder Logical Freight Solutions (LFS) as it looks to expand its international healthcare supply chain offering.
Melbourne-based LFS serves the healthcare industry, including life science, ag-bio, diagnostics, therapeutics, proteomics, medical devices, microbiology, genomics, chemicals, radiopharmaceuticals, instruments, spare parts and all consumables for these industries.

MNX’s footprint will be particularly enhanced in the Asia-Pacific region with the addition of LFS, which has offices in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the US.
LFS chief executive Steve Cheetham said: “Since its inception, Logical Freight Solutions has steadily built an infrastructure and specialized expertise that provides our customers with true door-to-door service, from internal supplier to end-user.
"Joining MNX further propels the growth of our business and service offerings across new geographies, and gives our customers access to a diversified range of logistics services and new technologies.”
