 EXEL LOGISTICS ACQUIRES TRAMMELL CROW DISTRIBUTION CORPORATION
 Atlanta Distribution Leader Intensifies
 Unique Standing In The Logistics Industry
 ATLANTA, July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Exel Logistics U.S.A., well-reputed logistics provider in Atlanta, has acquired Texas-based Trammell Crow Distribution Corporation effective July 10.
 Trammell Crow Distribution Corporation (TCDC) was formed when its parent company, The Trammell Crow Company, expanded real estate operations to offer warehousing services. The Trammell Crow Company is well-known in Atlanta for its residential, industrial and retail real estate holdings.
 In Georgia, Exel Logistics U.S.A. will assume operations of the TCDC Atlanta facilities currently serving Canon, Frito Lay Inc., Georgia School Book Depository, General Electric Appliances and other Fortune 500 companies, thus adding to its roster of clients including but not limited to Chrysler, Lever Brothers, Kellogg's, and Reckitt & Colman.
 According to Andy Wood, Exel Logistics U.S.A.'s executive vice president and chief operating officer: "Atlanta is the distribution hub serving the Southeast and one of the top five serving the country. The TCDC acquisition will add a total of 44 distribution centers throughout the U.S. including another 516,000 square feet of warehouse space in Atlanta to Exel Logistics' already over 1 million square feet of available warehouse space and 60 vehicles."
 Trammell Crow Distribution Corporation has specialized in warehousing for industrial, consumer and retail industries since 1969, thus complementing Exel Logistics U.S.A.'s services to similar and complementary market sector participants. And, like Exel Logistics U.S.A., TCDC has also been a leading provider of value-added services, including specialized packaging for polymer products and computerized product blending.
 "Customers will benefit from Exel Logistics' ability to provide a full range of logistics services, including state-of-the-art information technology and integrated supply chain expertise," said Cliff Lynch, president of the former TCDC. Lynch will serve as a consultant to Exel Logistics U.S.A.
 Exel Logistics U.S.A. recently made a substantial economic and environmental investment in the metropolitan Atlanta/Southeastern corridor with the purchase of 100 acres and two buildings south of Atlanta's Hartsfield Airport. While already very visible as a major third-party logistics partner in the South, the infusion of business dollars and additional development will have a significant impact on the area's economy.
 The company is the U.S. operation of Exel Logistics, a division of NFC (AMEX: NFC; London), a $3 billion international company based in the U.K. and listed on the American and London Stock Exchanges.
