Addition of protein-focused transportation business represents first step in company’s ambitious growth strategy in Brazil

Emergent Cold Latin America (Emergent LatAm), Latin America’s newest temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics provider, recently acquired DMX Logística, a transportation company that supports Brazil’s protein industry.

The acquisition is Emergent LatAm’s first investment in Brazil and represents an important piece of its growth strategy in a key global food trade market, the company said.

“It is with a great pleasure that we welcome the team of DMX Logística to Emergent Cold Latin America,” said Evandro Calanca, managing director of Emergent Cold Brazil. “This transaction represents our first step toward building a large and fully integrated cold chain network in Brazil, including storage and transportation.

“We have a number of exciting announcements planned that will serve to meet our customers’ growing demand in this important global market.”

Based in Itajaí, Santa Catarina, DMX Logística operates a modern fleet of more than 400 trucks and trailers across 13 locations, in addition to rail, cabotage, and other modes, serving the largest reefer ports in South Brazil. It has a good reputation throughout the protein industry for its expansive market coverage and customer service. As part of Emergent LatAm, DMX Logística will embark upon a growth plan that includes technology investment and geographic expansion.

“We are very pleased to join Emergent Cold Latin America,” said Mayckon Cabral, director and co-owner of DMX Logística. “With this transaction, our customers will gain access to a more integrated logistics solution, and our employees will enjoy new growth opportunities. The entire DMX team is honored to be part of this exciting project.”
