Global Critical Logistics

Helping US-based Global Critical Logistics expand

Shoosmiths’ advised US-based logistics company Global Critical Logistics on their acquisition of U.K. based Classic Automotive Relocation Services (CARS), a specialist in the road, air, and sea freight shipment of historic, rare, and prestigious vehicles. We were introduced to this matter through existing relationships at Global Critical Logistics (GCL). Our client, GCL, was looking to acquire Classic Automotive Relocation Services (CARS) and in doing so it would expand their international presence by pushing them further into Europe, the USA, and Asia. Given the international nature of this deal, we worked with our international firms at the World Services Group (WSG) on this, whilst handling the UK element. The client was facing the possibility of having to conduct 3 separate transactions. CARS Group had three different entities set up, and so without our creative collaboration, GCL would’ve needed to instruct three different firms and have them draw up three separate sets of terms.
