Emergent Cold Latin America (Emergent LatAm) has acquired DMX Logistica, which is regarded as the premier transportation company supporting Brazil’s protein industry. This is the expanding company’s first investment in Brazil and represents an important step of its growth strategy in a key global food trade market.
Based in Itajaí, Santa Catarina, DMX Logística operates a fleet of more than 400 trucks and trailers across 13 locations, in addition to rail, cabotage and other modals, serving the largest reefer ports in South Brazil. As part of Emergent LatAm, it will now embark on an ambitious geographic expansion plan bolstered by technology investment.
“It is with great pleasure that we welcome the team of DMX Logística to Emergent Cold Latin America,” said Evandro Calanca, managing director of Emergent Cold Brazil. “This transaction represents our first step towards building a large and fully integrated cold chain network in Brazil, including storage and transportation. We have a number of exciting announcements planned that will serve to meet our customers’ growing demand in this important global market.”

The entire DMX team is honored to be part of this exciting project.”
