BAX Global to Close Toledo Air Hub and Lay Off 700 Employees

BAX Global Inc. will close down its air hub at the Toledo Express Airport in Toledo, Ohio, affecting 700 employees.  The Company said that the closing is due to the phasing out its dedicated air fleet in the United States.  Bax Global will be switching its business model from operating its own air fleet to a non fixed-base model.

DB Schenker, the parent company of Bax Global, said in a press release that the plant closing is due to "changing marketplace conditions and along with the renewed focus on transportation management services is aimed at positioning the company for continued growth and success." 

BAX Global is an international shipping company that is headquartered in Irvine, Calif., and has other major offices in Australia, Singapore, London, the Netherlands and Toledo, Ohio.  The company which was founded in 1971 also operates an airline.  After having been acquired by DB Logistics in January 2006, Bax Global is currently being integrated with Schenker, the land, sea, and air freight branch of DB Logistics.  DB Logistics is the freight and logistics division of Deutsche Bahn, the German railway company.
