IntelliMedia Networks Inc., a leading provider of streaming media distribution and immersive training technology, acquired GlobalMLX, a Canadian supply-chain security training and certification consulting firm for an undisclosed amount. GlobalMLX is a U.S. Homeland Security recognized consultant providing industry-leading anti-terrorism supply-chain training and certification for cargo transport to the United States.
GlobalMLX has earned recognition as a “Best Practice in the Supply Chain Security & Threat Awareness Industry” by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, maintaining a 100% success rate of client certification since 2002.
“This acquisition will position IntelliMedia Networks to offer technology solutions under the ASCT Systems brand by extending our industry-leading cloud-based training platform – Apollo and GlobalMLX’s unique CTPAT training content enabling us to simplify and expand the certification process for the CTPAT program,” said Darshan Sedani, president and co-founder of IntelliMedia Networks. Mr. Sedani added, “Our highly advanced training platform enables clients to learn at their own pace and prepares them for the knowledge required to be certified.”
The CTPAT program was launched by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2001 to train and verify participating companies in maintaining a high level of cargo security in conformance to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s standard for continued ease of access to the U.S. market.
“We are excited to offer this new approach to CTPAT training by combining our content and expertise with the global reach, ease of use, and AI-based intelligence of IntelliMedia’s Apollo LTMS platform. We will be able to scale and revolutionize the way C – TPAT training and certification are provided to our clients,” said Mandy Lynn Aitken CEO of GlobalMLX.
