Investor builds a last-mile delivery service

Companies consolidate under 1st Choice Delivery brand


Northern Pacific Group, a Minnesota-based private equity firm, has acquired two regional last-mile delivery companies, both of which handle pharmaceutical deliveries for wholesalers, or for healthcare facilities. The two companies are 1st Choice Delivery, based in St. Louis, and 4SameDay, based in El Segundo, CA. Both companies have experienced “significant growth,” says Northern Pacific, and provide enhanced security and tracking services for on-demand or managed-delivery shipping. 1st Choice operates from 11 locations in Illinois, Missouri and Kansas.

“Northern Pacific Group is truly excited about our partnership with the talented and proven leadership teams at 1st Choice Delivery and 4Sameday,” said Marcy Haymaker, principal at Northern Pacific, in a statement. “They are the foundation for our continued consolidation of best-in-class last mile delivery companies.”
