Arcapita Bank announced the sale of 3PD Holding, Inc. (3PD), a last-mile logistics company in the United States and Canada, for $365m. 3PD was acquired by XPO Logistics Inc., a transportation logistics companies serving North America. Arcapita acquired a majority stake in 3PD in 2006 and afterwards provided investment capital to 3PD.
