Arne Hamers, a partner at Capital A, stated: “We are impressed by the accomplishments of Caliber’s management team in the area of project and construction logistics. Over the years, Jeroen Scholten and his team have built a solid performing digital 4PL platform servicing the needs of retail groups, their suppliers and other service providers across the globe. We are enthusiastic to be able to partner with Caliber’s team and support them in further expanding its service offering into adjacent areas, both organically as well as acquisitively.”
