Rock-Its Link Up After 25 Years

Having traded separately under virtually the same name for more than 25 years the two Rock-It Cargo companies have linked, with the U.S. version buying the U.K. company for an undisclosed sum.

"The completion of this transaction brings our longtime U.K. partners into the family," said David Bernstein, chairman and chief exec for the California-based Rock-It Cargo Holdings LLC.

The U.K.’s Rock-It Cargo Ltd. was founded in 1978 by Chris Wright, who will stay on as managing director of the British-based operation.

Over the past 28 years, the Rock-It Cargo companies have dominated freight forwarding and logistics for live events around the world.

"The merger of our businesses is the natural next step for our organisation," Wright said.

"By joining together, we can leverage our joint resources and grow even more quickly than before. We’re very excited to help create this expanded incarnation of Rock-It Cargo."
