In February, 2018, Asendia Holding AG (“Asendia”), an international mail partnership between La Poste (Paris) and Swiss Post (Berne), announced the acquisition of Globegistics, Inc., further strengthening Asendia’s position in North America (Asendia USA) as a leading provider for international
e-Commerce and mail solutions.

Initially, Globegistics and Asendia USA continued to operate as independent entities. However, Asendia USA is excited to announce that both organizations have been working together over the past several months with a goal to become fully integrated as Asendia USA by the end of 2019.

The combination of Asendia USA and Globegistics provides online retailers and other businesses sending mail or parcels internationally with nationwide access and combined synergies in 6 major gateway processing centers, including Miami, Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Notable facility changes over the past several months include:

  • In October 2018, Asendia USA and Globegistics together opened a brand new 14,000 square foot facility in San Francisco, CA. This location offers online retailers and other businesses in the Pacific Northwest the convenience to ship mail and parcels globally.
  • In January 2019, Globegistics and Asendia USA merged into combined facilities in both Elk Grove Village, IL (Chicago area) and Bell, CA (Los Angeles area).

Effective July 1, 2019, Globegistics will begin rolling out its new Asendia USA name and brand with a co-branding period that will run through the end of 2019. As of January 1, 2020, Globegistics will be fully transitioned into the Asendia USA team.

Also effective July 1, 2019, Rob DiVincenzo, President & CEO of Globegistics, will join Asendia USA’s Management team as CEO. Michael Hastings, Asendia USA’s outgoing CEO, and one of the original owners of the company since its founding in 1986 as Brokers Worldwide, will remain as Asendia USA Chairman and a member of the Board of Directors of Asendia USA.

“I am excited about the opportunity to work with so many talented people who work at Asendia USA and Globegistics,” said Rob DiVincenzo. “Michael has left behind a well-established dynamic company that has always excelled in the US market. Thanks to his leadership, Asendia USA is positioned well to be the market leader in US outbound cross-border parcel and mail distribution. Our talented team has been working closely together to provide a seamless transition to one US entity. Our US footprint (6 operating centers), postal ownership, global commercial relationships, and new technology platform, Asendia One, will provide our current and future customers with a delivery experience that no other US company can provide.”

“As CEO of Asendia USA (formerly Brokers Worldwide) since 1986, our ambition has been to remain true to our values of Trust, Friendliness, and Ease of Use,” said Michael Hastings. “Moving into my new position with Asendia USA, I could not be more confident that we will continue to live those values with Rob DiVincenzo taking over the role of CEO. With Rob’s experience, values, and leadership ability combined with the exceptional teams from both companies, our customers and employees can expect a seamless transition.”
