Minneapolis-based C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc., a provider of transportation and supply chain services, has acquired certain operating subsidiaries of Transera International Holdings Ltd., a project forwarding company headquartered in Calgary, Canada. Transera is one of the largest privately owned project forwarders in North America, with annual gross revenues of approximately $125 million.

Transera, established in 1985, is a non-asset based global project forwarder providing North American and international transportation of over-dimensional and heavy lift shipments. Transera has 107 employees in eight offices throughout Canada, Dubai, Singapore and the U.S. Its customers are primarily in the oil, gas, mining and wind power industries.

"Transera further expands our international freight forwarding network and brings a greater depth to C.H. Robinson's existing core capabilities," says Jeff Scovill, C.H. Robinson vice president of international forwarding. "We work hard to find new ways to serve our customers. Transera will give us broader expertise, providing opportunities to grow existing customer relationships and develop new ones."

Rosemary Marr, founder and CEO of Transera, will continue with C.H. Robinson as president of Transera. Paul Pols and Amir Haji, currently on Transera's senior leadership team, will continue with Transera in similar leadership roles.
