Milgram Announces the Acquisition of M.O.T. Intermodal Shipping Inc. 2014-11-06

We are very pleased to announce that on November 1st 2014 Milgram concluded its acquisition of M.O.T. Intermodal Shipping Inc., a Canadian freight forwarder based in Montreal, and M.O.T. Intermodal Shipping USA, Inc., an American freight forwarder and customs broker with one office in New York and one in Texas.

We are also delighted to say that the entire team is staying with us, including Mr. Ole Enderslev, previous owner and founder of M.O.T.

M.O.T. is a full service provider specializing in air and ocean exports from Canada and the USA, with a particular focus on Europe. They also handle freight to and from Asia and South America.

This is an important strategic expansion for Milgram for several reasons; it gives us added strength in the European market; it gives us a physical presence in the USA; it compliments our US customs brokerage service by adding a licence in the USA; it gives us exposure to important new clients; it significantly increases our standing in the export market; and it strengthens our management team as well. The acquisition benefits M.O.T. by giving them the support and resources they are looking for in sales, administration and technology solutions to manage and to grow their business.

We will soon be making room in our Head Office for the new members of our team.


Montreal Overseas Transport was formed in 1980 as a Canadian based, international freight forwarder. In 1982, the name was changed to M.O.T. Intermodal Shipping Inc. to emphasize the intermodal concept of the company. M.O.T. opened its first office in the USA in 2003 in Rochester NY, and a second office was opened in Texas in 2006. MOT USA is licensed as an international freight forwarder and as a customs broker, as well as being a C-TPAT member and being certified as an IAC for air freight.

Please join us in welcoming the entire M.O.T. team to the Milgram family!
