GERMANY – IRELAND – WORLDWIDE – Time critical logistics specialist Bespoke Distribution Aviation (BDA) which, whilst domiciled in Ireland and Germany operates throughout Western Europe via its hubs in the UK, France and the Netherlands, today announced the acquisition of working partners NightExpress GmbH and N.E. NightExpress Limited with whom it has run country specific freight services since 2007.

The deal was finalised by the partners today (June 5) at the Transport Logistics 2013 trade show in Munich and BDA says the acquisitions will add to its abilities by linking with its established ‘air bridges’ into mainland Europe. Steve Court, Sales and Marketing Director at BDA commented:

“This acquisition is a logical progression within our business model that continues to strengthen our infrastructure and service propositions for the benefit of all our customers. It is important that we provide all our customers with local management and logistical expertise. This acquisition further strengthens this element of our company within Germany and enhances our business greatly.”

NightExpress has held a position as a specialist provider for time critical overnight cargo services between Germany and the UK for almost 30 years and operates express cargo flights from Frankfurt to Coventry and back, five nights a week. The company also provides other countries throughout Europe with ad-hoc cargo charter flights and fixed contract operated routes. Yvonne Boag, Managing Director, added:

“Historically we have worked alongside individual members of the BDA senior management team and we are looking forward to developing an even closer relationship within the BDA group of companies. We are excited by the new extended opportunities this relationship provides, especially being able to add further services that BDA already has in its portfolio, to those that we have offered for so many years out of Frankfurt. This will provide all our clients with an even greater number of service options to deliver their time-critical and express consignments from Germany into the UK and Ireland.”
