Focusing on the automobile segment, the 2,500 crore turnover TVS Logistics will now add newer verticals like information technology (IT) and telecom, he said.

This is the third acquisition by TVS Logistics in Britin after CJ Components in 2004 and Multipart Holdings in 2009. These two companies are now functioning under one brand - TVS Supply Chain Solutions (TVS SCS).

Dinesh said that few more acquisitions were in the pipeline.

TVS Logistics is aiming to have a turnover of $1 billion by 2015.

Rico Logistics' managing director Sanjive Sharma said the acquisition by TVS Logistics would help the company expand its offerings across Europe and the globe.

Rico Logistics, which started in 1988, has grown from a same-day courier company to an ambitious pan-European logistics company with a turnover of around 380 crore.
