Daher expands its range of aerospace industry global logistics services with the planned acquisition of Transports Chabrillac


Daher is in the process of acquiring Transports Chabrillac, the satellite and launcher transporter specialist, to further reinforce its status as a leader in special and multimodal transportation for the aerospace industry.

For more than 60 years, Toulouse, France-based Transports Chabrillac has specialized in providing transportation services for the space industry, serving leading European companies – including Airbus, ArianeGroup and Thales.

The acquisition will consolidate Daher’s status as a specialist in multimodal solutions for the aviation, defense and space industries. This injection of new expertise will further extend the diverse range of global transportation solutions offered by Daher, from freight forwarding and road transportation to logistics consultancy and project management. Once the acquisition is completed, the Daher Group will be fully capable of supporting its customers operationally and in export markets.

“The Daher teams and I are delighted to announce our upcoming acquisition of Transports Chabrillac. This transaction is integral to the strategy of further developing and strengthening our aerospace logistics business, which already occupies a leading market position in Europe. The fact that Daher and Transports Chabrillac are both present in Southwestern France, and are family businesses that share many core values, makes it a very logical acquisition.”

Didier Kayat, Chief Executive Officer of Daher

“We’re very much looking forward to this acquisition. Transports Chabrillac shares our ambitions for innovation in the transportation industry and its ultimate decarbonization. This transaction will extend our skills and expertise into areas of particular interest to space industry customers.”
