X2 Group was formed in 2012 with a vision of providing a professional alternative for freight forwarders. A company offering services that would allow for small-medium size freight forwarders to compete with multinationals in both capability and presentation.

X2 Group and its first venture, X2 Logistics Networks, have their beginnings in 2012 when Richard Overton formed the company with the purpose of bringing professionalism to the logistics networking industry, an aspect that was recognized as lacking by Richard and leading individuals within the freight forwarding industry. X2 Group and X2 Logistics Networks have sought to establish relationships with companies that are seeking more professional dealings with global partners.
