The Corporate team at Addleshaw Goddard has advised global supply chain management provider Ligentia on its acquisition of Polish operator VGL Solid Group.

The deal will help Ligentia accelerate its ambitions to leverage its technology and experience in new, fast-growing territories and sectors, and establishes a major international supply chain management company with revenues of over £1 billion.

VGL is a leading Polish supply chain, freight and logistics solutions provider and the combination strengthens Ligentia’s presence on the Asia-Europe and Transpacific trade lanes. Ligentia’s market-leading technology platform, Ligentix, provides its customers’ planners and logistics teams with full visibility through a SKU level control tower platform that connects factories, carriers, customs, warehouses and delivery to the end customer in a way that gives enhanced control over inventories anywhere in the world.

The AG team advising on the deal included Paul Medlicott, Ben Edwards, Dave Parker, Lara Jones and James Garner.

Paul Medlicott and Dave Parker at Addleshaw Goddard, said:

"We are delighted to have helped our client Ligentia complete this transaction, which will see it very well placed to continue its growth in new markets and sectors. It's a business at the cutting edge in supply chain management and one that we believe will go from strength to strength following this acquisition."

Addleshaw Goddard had previously advised Equistone Partners Europe in its significant investment into Ligentia in 2021.
