LOGISTICS company CS Cargo Slovakia completed the acquisition of the transportation company mGal spedition Bratislava this February.

The takeover makes CS Cargo Slovakia the largest logistics company in the Slovak market. The company announced it plans to further increase its market share in storage and logistics services.

Stanislav Vencel, previous general director of mGal spedition and a 50-percent shareholder, became general director of the new firm as a result of the acquisition, CS Cargo Slovakia stated.

"In line with company strategy, we want to increase our share in the storage and complex logistics services market," Vencel, director general and the chairman of the board of directors of CS Cargo Slovakia, told the media.

Following the acquisition the company underwent personnel changes to enhance its managerial structure.

"I am convinced that the personnel changes will also significantly contribute to reaching our goal," Vencel said.

The companies announced the acquisition in November of last year. They decided not to disclose the purchase price.
