Fidelitone Logistics Expands Last Mile Delivery Services with Merger

Fidelitone Logistics, a provider of third party logistics (3PL) and supply chain performance, has announced a merger with 3PL provider Purnell Furniture Services Inc. and their wholly owned subsidiary Advanced Delivery Systems Inc. (ADS).

Purnell is a Virginia-based company that provides last mile delivery services for furniture retailers throughout the east coast.

According to a statement from Fidelitone, this acquisition strengthens a core logistics service while providing home delivery expertise for a key industry, retail furniture.

The addition of Purnell’s regional support centers increases Fidelitone’s last mile delivery footprint to include nearly 80 percent of the U.S. population.

“We are very excited to join forces with the talented logistics professionals at Purnell,” shared Josh Johnson, president of Fidelitone Logistics. “This partnership not only strengthens a core service offering, but provides a great deal of industry expertise and a strong history of delivering client satisfaction. As a company founded with the principle of customer focus, this acquisition was an obvious fit.”

Richard Purnell, president of Purnell Fidelitone Services, agrees. “To be meaningful in home delivery, a service provider requires a national last mile delivery network. Separately Purnell, ADS and Fidelitone have been pursuing this objective. By joining forces, our customers benefit overnight from a significantly expanded footprint while still enjoying the level of service they have come to expect from their trusted providers.”

The transaction was completed on Dec. 31, 2012 and brings the U.S.-based Fidelitone Logistics service area to over 40 locations.
