Delta-based Alliance Border Services has been acquired by an Ontario-based business.
Alliance Border Services Inc., which provides a full suite of customs brokerage services, will continue to operate as a stand-alone business from its headquarters in Delta, according to a press release.
“Bringing Alliance Border Services into the Near North Customs' family gives us additional depth in the B.C. market which translates to more choice and convenience for our customers,” said Dave Jupp, vice president sales, Near North Customs Brokers Inc. “We look forward to introducing the services and people of Alliance to our clientele and we certainly see opportunities to offer our services to Alliance's customers in return. We believe this is a great move that will benefit all.”
All of Alliance Border Services employees have transferred to Near North Customs, including Bob Peterson, president of Alliance, who will be staying on for a few months to help ensure a smooth transition, according to the release.
Near North Customs also acquired Nanaimo’s ISL Customs Broker.
