Rakuten Super Logistics (RSL), a Japanese e-commerce order fulfillment software company with U.S. headquarters in Las Vegas, has acquired Salt Lake City-based sister companies FirstMile and IFS360. FirstMile and IFS360 provide e-commerce services including warehousing, fulfillment, and shipping.
“We are excited to welcome FirstMile and IFS360 to the RSL family,” said Michael Manzione, CEO of Rakuten’s U.S. operations. “The acquisitions will position RSL well in a strategic regional market while offering our clients greater access and choices for growing their business, competing and delivering an improved customer experience.”
In a release, Rakuten said the acquisition of IFS360 gives Rakuten immediate access into the Salt Lake City market and that FirstMile offers an opportunity for Rakuten clients to use its transportation network, infrastructure and experience.
“Becoming a part of RSL’s family accelerates our growth and allows us to better support our customer base,” said Devin Johnson, CEO and founder of FirstMile and IFS360. “This acquisition fuels our ability to improve our product offerings, grow our infrastructure and increase our scalability, which at the end of the day, creates much greater value for our customers and partners around the world.”
