Leading Luggage Delivery Service Continues Consolidation of Industry
BOSTON, MA – April 25, 2011 – Luggage Forward, the leading provider of doorstep to destination luggage delivery worldwide, today announced the purchase of Florida-based Ship Luggage, LLC. This transaction marks the sixth luggage shipping brand that Luggage Forward has acquired in the past 24 months.
Ship Luggage, a rapidly expanding entrant into the luggage shipping market, brings a number of valuable assets to the table including an impressive client list, key industry relationships and a trusted brand. The company’s innovative website, www-shipluggage-com.www.luggageforward.com, has leading edge functionality that is a natural extension of Luggage Forward’s existing technology.
“We are pleased to bring another premier luggage shipping brand into the Luggage Forward family,” said Aaron Kirley, co-founder of Luggage Forward. “Ship Luggage has been able to build a trusted brand in a short period of time, and under the Luggage Forward umbrella the company will have the resources to flourish.”
Ship Luggage will join a growing family of brands that Luggage Forward has acquired since 2009, including Baggage Quest, Luggage Advance, Luggage Express, Sports Express and Virtual Bellhop. The resulting increase in scale has allowed Luggage Forward to forge new logistics partnerships and reduced international prices by up to 60% in some areas. Ship Luggage clients will now benefit from this improved pricing, more domestic delivery options, and service to more than 200 countries and territories worldwide.
