Magnate Worldwide Acquires ASAP Expediting & Logistics, enhancing TrumpCard’s premier service offering

PORTLAND, Ore.Feb. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Magnate Worldwide is pleased to announce the acquisition of ASAP Expediting & Logistics, as a strategic addition to TrumpCard, its premier service provider of heavyweight, time sensitive, and mission critical shipments.  Like TrumpCard, ASAP specializes in shipments which are of high consequence, and must arrive as the name implies, as soon as possible.

Founded in 2008, ASAP distinguishes itself with its recognition of the value of uptime, and the cost of downtime to manufacturing and productivity. Aptly named, as soon as possible shipments are their expertise: anytime, anywhere, any situation.  "We are very excited to forge the next of phase of ASAP and could not have found a better home.  TrumpCard and ASAP have very similar cultures and recognize that our people are what make us who we are," shared Angela and Garland Hobgood, President & CEO of ASAP, respectively.

"TrumpCard's specialization and unique value proposition has always allowed us to set ourselves apart from other service providers.  We found the same rare quality in ASAP, and now can expand our service offering, while leveraging the core resources of TrumpCard," said Marco Hanlon, Executive Chairman.

ASAP's office in Columbia, South Carolina, is strategically placed to service its surrounding manufacturing corridor.  Fully operational, complete with some of the best people in the industry, ASAP will continue its great legacy, now with the support you would expect of a TrumpCard Signature Service.

Magnate Worldwide is committed to organic growth and growth through select acquisitions.  "ASAP and TrumpCard are each very special companies, built upon satisfying the most demanding and unique shipping circumstances.  The joining of these strengths forms a landmark partnership of two companies with exceptional leadership, and a laser-like market focus," said Dante Fornari, CEO of Magnate Worldwide.

I want to thank you and your team for the A+ service I always get. Yes, I have had several emergency orders lately, and I just love the quality of service your team provides. I think I had called with 2 or 3 requests to expedite, but only 1 of them panned out. The one week I had like 3 HOT orders in one day, and all of them dragged out for several days. What I was impressed with is that your team called me back to check on them and ask if they could be of service to follow up. That is not typical in the shipping world, not my experience anyways. If you recall, we used you all to get parts delivered last winter. Well, this time, as soon as the customer said breakdown, and need it now, he followed up with “hey, can you use that outfit you used last time, they were quite speedy with the delivery”. He remembered how smoothly those last shipments went and how there were no hiccups in the delivery. He was impressed. So, long story short, keep up with the excellent service!! Please give our thanks from us and our customers to your team.

Chris B., Parts Manager
