Aerostar Global Logistics, a leader in international freight forwarding and domestic shipping solutions for the aerospace supply chain, announced the acquisition of Professional Freight Solutions (PFS), located in metropolitan Detroit. This latest acquisition will support all of Aerostar’s aerospace and other specialty customers in North America.
Aerostar acquired PFS at a time when the aerospace supply chain is demanding more and more services for fully-integrated freight management, supply chain optimization, rate negotiations, inbound vendor management and audit services.
The addition of PFS and its experienced employees will enable Aerostar to more effectively service its growing customer base by handling ocean import/export, air import/export, drayage, LTL, truckload, warehouse storage, order fulfillment, kitting, and full-service supply chain management.

“We are pleased to partner with a premium logistics company like Aerostar,” said Mark Hebden, founder of PFS. “We look forward to continuing to offer our unique brand of customer service as part of an experienced, global logistics provider.”
