ISELIN, N.J., Dec. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Taylored Fulfillment Services, a national leader in distribution, fulfillment, eCommerce and warehousing, today announced it has closed its acquisition of the US operations of Toll Global Logistics, the $8.7 billion Australian logistics company.

“Toll has closed an agreement to sell our US logistics operations which includes warehousing and trucking operations nationally to Taylored. The sale will allow Toll to focus on our core growth markets across the Asia Pacificregion,” said Peter Stokes, President Toll Global Logistics.
