We have guided the acquisitions of AYS in 2016 and BDA in 2019, and the merger with LSi Logistik in 2017, to strengthen Carousel’s M&A strategy. The new mergers and acquisitions allowed Carousel to expand its international footprint and offers its client a wider range of enchanced services, leading to a 50% increase in revenue.
