Logistics International, Inc. (“Unique Logistics” or “Unique” or “the Company”) provides a
full range of global logistics services by providing to its customers a robust international network that strategically supports the
movement of its customers goods. Acting solely as a third-party logistics provider, Unique purchases available cargo space in volume
from its network of carriers (such as airlines, ocean shipping, and trucking lines) and resells that space to our customers. Unique Logistics
does not own any of these ships, trucks, or aircraft and does not plan on entering the ownership model.
via its wholly owned subsidiaries, Unique Logistics International (BOS) Inc, a Massachusetts corporation (“UL BOS”) and Unique
Logistics International (NYC), LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, Unique Logistics provides a range of international logistics
services that enable its customers to outsource to the Company sections of their supply chain process. The services provided by the Company
are seamlessly managed by its network of trained employees and integrated information systems. We enable our customers to share data
regarding their international vendors and purchase orders with us, execute the flow of goods and information under their operating instructions,
provide visibility to the flow of goods from factory to distribution center or store and when required, update their inventory records.
The Company operates in a business environment
where both our customers as well as our suppliers are potentially impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Our customer base includes several
customers whose business involves retail to the public through brick and mortar stores, many of them in shopping malls. In the period
February 2020 to May 2020, many such customers faced significant downturn in their business resulting in shut down of supply chains and
business loss for our Company. The Company’s operating subsidiaries secured PPP loans from the government that enabled us to maintain
our operations and meet our overhead commitments in this period. Driven initially by online retail and later by the opening of in-person
retail, by February 2021 most of our customers saw their business recover to pre-pandemic levels. As the business of our customers recovered, the Company’s business
steadily increased and surpassed pre-pandemic era volumes.
Structure and History
Logistics International, Inc. (the “Company” or “Unique”) (formerly Innocap, Inc.) was incorporated in Nevada
on January 23, 2004. Innocap, Inc. became a publicly traded company in 2004. In May 2011, the Company changed its business plan to researching
the location of and salvaging sunken ships. Until October 2020, the Company had been actively negotiating several research and salvage
projects including in Indonesia and Malaysia in connection with ships that were sunk during World War II.
October 8, 2020, the Company, Inno Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Merger
Sub”), and Unique Logistics Holdings, Inc., a privately-held Delaware corporation headquartered in New York (“UL HI”),
entered into an Acquisition Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Acquisition Agreement”) pursuant to which the Merger Sub was
merged with and into UL HI, with UL HI surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Innocap Inc. (the “Merger”). The transaction
(the “Closing”) took place on October 8, 2020 (the “Closing Date”). Innocap Inc. acquired, through a reverse
triangular merger, all of the outstanding capital stock of UL HI in exchange for issuing UL HI’s shareholders (the “UL HI
Shareholders”), pro-rata, an aggregate of 1,000,000 million shares of preferred stock, with certain of UL HI Shareholders receiving
130,000 shares of Innocap Inc.’s Series A Preferred Stock par value $0.001 per share, and certain of the UL HI Shareholders receiving
of 870,000 shares of Innocap Inc.’s Series B Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share. Immediately after the Merger was consummated,
and further to the Acquisition Agreement, certain affiliates of Innocap Inc. cancelled a total of 45,606,489 shares of Innocap Inc.’s
common stock, and 1,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock held by them (the “Cancellation”). In consideration of the Cancellation
of such shares of Innocap Inc.’s common stock and preferred stock, Holdings agreed to assume certain liabilities of Innocap Inc.
As a result of the Merger and the Cancellation, the UL HI Shareholders became the majority shareholders of the Company. Immediately following
the Closing of the Merger, Innocap Inc. changed its business plan to that of UL HI.
January 11, 2021, Innocap Inc. filed a certificate of amendment to its articles of incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State
of Nevada, for the adoption of amended and restated articles of incorporation of Innocap Inc. (the “Amended and Restated Articles
of Incorporation”). The adopted Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation: (i) increased the number of authorized common stock
from 500,000,000 shares to 800,000,000 shares; and (ii) changed the Company’s name to Unique Logistics International, Inc. (the
Name Change was approved by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and became effective in the market on January 14, 2021.
Logistics Holdings Management Buyout Transaction
Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Unique Logistics Holdings, Inc. (“Unique”) a Delaware corporation, was formed on
October 28, 2019, for the purpose of conducting a management buyout of three United States subsidiaries majority owned by Unique Logistics
Holdings Ltd., a Hong Kong company (“UL HK”) (the “Management Buy Out Transaction”).
HK was incorporated in Hong Kong in 1983. UL HK commenced its business with a focus on transpacific logistics services because of the
increasing demands of trade between Hong Kong and the United States. The initial focus was on air freight services, but UL HK quickly
diversified into ocean freight services. In its first fifteen years of operations, UL HK established itself as a major international
logistics service provider in Hong Kong. Driven by the needs of its customer base, from 1997 through 2012, UL HK established a network
of offices throughout Asia and the United States. By the end of 2012, the Unique Logistics brand was well recognized in several Asian
countries including China, India, and Vietnam. In the United States, UL HK offices in Boston, Atlanta, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago
had a growing United States customer base in several sectors such as fashion, department stores, furniture, toys, and home goods. The
vast majority of ULHK’s international business consisted of services pertaining to United States based companies.
May 29, 2020 (the “Buyout Transaction Date”)
Unique entered into that certain Securities Purchase Agreement (“UL
HK Purchase Agreement”) by and between Unique and UL HK, pursuant to which the Company purchased from UL HK (i) sixty percent (60%)
of the membership interests of Unique Logistics International (ATL) LLC, a Georgia limited liability company (“UL ATL”);
(ii) eighty percent (80%) of the common stock of Unique Logistics International (BOS) Inc, a Massachusetts corporation (“UL BOS”);
and (iii) sixty-five percent (65%) of Unique Logistics International (USA) Inc., a New York corporation, a sole owner of Unique Logistics
International (NYC), Inc. (“UL NYC”), for a purchase price of: (i) US$6,000,000, to be paid in accordance with the following
(a) $1,000,000 in cash (the “UL HK Cash Purchase Price”); (b) $5,000,000 in the form a subordinated promissory note issued
in favor of UL HK and (c) 1,500,000 shares of common stock of Unique Logistics Holdings, representing on issuance 15% of fully paid and
non-assessable shares of common stock then outstanding on a fully diluted basis (the “UL HK Stock Purchase Price”). Pursuant
to the UL HK Purchase Agreement, Unique has been granted an option to purchase 50% of UL HK’s interest in Unique Logistics International
(North and East China) Company Limited and its affiliated companies (collectively “UL China”) and has been granted an option
to purchase 65% of UL HK’s interest in Unique Logistics International India (Private) Limited (“UL India”) within 12
months of the Buyout Transaction Date.
connection with the Management Buyout Transaction, Unique also entered into three separate securities purchase agreements with the minority
interest holders of UL ATL (the “UL ATL Transaction”), UL BOS (the “UL BOS Transaction”) and UL NYC (the “UL
NYC Transaction”), respectively, whereby, together with the consummation of the Management Buy Out Transaction, each such entity
became a wholly owned subsidiary of Unique Logistics Holdings.
Logistics primary services include:
Brokerage and Compliance services
and Distribution services
as an Indirect Air Carrier (IAC) or an airfreight consolidator, Unique Logistics provides both time savings and cost-effective air freight
options to its customers. An expansive global network enables the Company to offer door to door service allowing customers to benefit
from our expert staff for guidance with the physical movement of cargo and documentation compliance. Unique purchases cargo space from
airlines on a volume basis and resells that space to our customers at a lower price than they would be able to negotiate themselves for
their individual shipments. The Company, through its integrated management system, determines the best routing for shipments and then
arrangements are made to receive the cargo into a designated warehouse. Upon receipt, cargo is inspected and weighed, documentation is
collected and export clearance is processed. Once cargo is cleared it is prepared for departure. Unique Logistics offers real-time tracking
visibility for customers to view when an order is booked, departs and arrives. Unique Logistics contracts with a worldwide network of
airlines and other service providers to provide the best airfreight service in assisting importers to ship using the most efficient and
cost-effective method. Some of the selections we offer include:
deferred, express and charter services, which permit customers to choose from a menu of different priority options that secure at
different price levels, greater assurance of timely delivery
to Port and Door to Door shipments, which provide customers the option of managing, independently, the post arrival services such
as delivery or clearance if the Company is not providing such services
blocked space agreements (BSA), which guarantee the availability of space on certain flights
and ocean combination shipment which offer cost effective transportation using multimodal, combination movements, by one mode to
an international hub, such as Dubai, UAE or Singapore and converting to a different mode at the hub
and transload dedicated truck shipment, where arriving cargo is transferred from airline container or pallet into a truckload ready
goods handling requiring qualified handling
as an ocean transportation intermediary (“OTI”) to provide ocean freight service both as a non-vessel owning common carrier
(“NVOCC”) and ocean freight forwarder, Unique Logistics provides to its customers ocean freight consolidation, direct ocean
forwarding, and order management. We are a common carrier that holds itself out to the public to provide ocean transportation, issues
its own house bills of lading or equivalent document, but does not operate the vessels by which ocean transportation is provided. The
Company’s roles and responsibilities in ocean freight services include the following:
the most optimal ocean carriers based on both cost and service. The Company has NVOCC contracts with multiple ocean carriers and
is thus able to offer its customers a choice in service;
into contract/rate agreement with clients to transport their ocean shipments. Under such contracts the customer is assured of the
Company’s pricing and weekly capacity to carry the customer’s cargo;
shipments at origin/deconsolidating of freight at destination. This enables the customer to receive the economics of a consolidated
container rate rather than a higher rate for less than full container load (“LCL”). It also makes delivery at destination
pick-up of shipment at origin and deliver at destination, with a factory to door service;
and processing the documentation/clearance (customs/security) for shipments during ocean transit, in advance of arrival of shipment
freight services are provided in both major and minor trade lanes with representation in all trading nations in Americas, Asia, and
a wide array of services typically performed by multiple services providers including but not limited to, offering options to customers
on ocean carrier service choices prior to final selection and securing such space based on customer requirement; this enables our
customers to delegate more of its logistics management to us whereas a more limited range of service would require the customer to
deal with multiple service providers;
on any regulation/compliance issues on exporting and importing shipments;
intermediary role at any point of ocean transportation based on customer’s routing preferences; and
space acquisition on carrier service for committed delivery during high demand period, and providing lower price option in weak demand
season for utmost cost saving.
Brokerage and Compliance Services
Logistics is a licensed United States customs broker whose mission is to ensure that its importing clients are in compliance with all
required regulations. Our services help importers clear cargo with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, including documentation collection,
valuation review, product classification, electronic submission to customs and the collection and payment of duties, tariffs and fees.
Unique Logistics works with importers to develop a compliant trade program including product databases, compliance manuals and periodic
internal audits. The development of product databases has become critical in the current economic environment due to the increasing trade
tensions and various tariffs imposed as a result. Unique Logistics also offers importers tools to improve on efficiency such as reporting,
visibility and trade consulting including training seminars. Additional services include:
of the Import Security Filing (10+2) required to be on file 24 hours prior to shipment departure;

Product Safety Commission and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service;

the Company and is 110,000 sq. ft. with storage capacity for around 9,000 pallets and 10 dedicated employees.

suppliers to shipping windows. Ultimately this results in optimizing consolidation and improved on-time delivery. Order management also
gives importers the power to control their supply chain by monitoring key milestone events, track order status and manage delivery to
the end consumer.

our own operating results as well as the industry as a whole have been subject to seasonal demand. With our financial year end of May
31, typically our first and second quarters are the strongest with the fourth quarter being the weakest; however, there are no guarantees
that these trends will continue or that the COVID-19 pandemic will not cause any other business disruptions. It is widely understood
in the industry that these seasonal trends are influenced by a number of factors, including weather patterns, national holidays, economic
conditions, consumer demand, major product launches, as well as a number of other market forces. Since many of these forces are unforeseen
there is no way for us to provide assurances that these seasonal trends will continue.
Logistics has established plans to grow its business by focusing on four key areas: (1) organic growth and expansion in existing markets;
(2) strategic acquisitions; (3) warehousing and distribution; and (4) specialized services to United States companies on their overseas
logistics needs in targeted Asian markets.
Growth and Expansion in Existing Markets:
We plan to focus on developing business domestically
to drive organic growth. Since the Management Buyout Transaction (See “Unique Logistics Holdings Management Buyout Transaction”),
we have significantly improved our operating efficiencies in the areas of procurement, customer service, finance and administration.
We believe this will result in much lower overhead and the ability to build a uniform marketing strategy to build market share and further
the brand recognition of Unique Logistics throughout the United States. Additionally, the Company will continuously assess its Information
Technology environment based on emerging trends in logistics and customer requirements. The first step in the strategy is already in
place: a single operating platform. We will continue to build add-on service tools that enhance our operating platform. One key area
for technology focus will be the seamless delivery of e-Commerce services from origin to consumer with shipment visibility for both customer
and the customer’s consumer.
believe Unique Logistics’ business base that includes three out of the fifty largest importers in the United States can be expanded
by building our sales organization and the support organization to successfully deliver our brand of service. The targeted growth areas,
to secure the business of other major importers as well as exporters, include Charlotte, NC, Dallas, TX, Houston, TX and Seattle,
currently maintain an option to acquire ownership of significant foreign subsidiaries of Unique Logistics Holdings Ltd. (“ULHK”), a Hong Kong company that are critical to our ability to meet our customers’ international requirements.
Through the Consulting Services Agreement between the Company and Great Eagle Freight Limited, (“GEFD) a Hong Kong company,
we will ensure that the international brand of Unique Logistics and the seamless services provided to customers remains in place
even before the options to acquire ULHK’s foreign subsidiaries are exercised. Additionally, it is our intention to increase our
business by seeking additional opportunities through potential domestic acquisitions, revenue sharing arrangements, partnerships or investments.
Logistics has successfully established a major warehousing facility in Santa Fe Springs, CA and now has in-house the management expertise
(commercial as well as operational) in successfully managing such facilities. Unique Logistics has also identified a method of identifying
growth opportunities by focusing on specific areas of the United States and existing well-constructed facilities where lease assumption
is available with an existing customer base.
Services to US Companies in Overseas Markets
Logistics has several decades of experience in Asian markets such as China, India, Vietnam and Indonesia. Unique Logistics is constantly
dealing with a United States customer base that seeks to do business in these areas but requires local expertise. We have the experience
and the connections to assist United States companies with local importation, local warehousing and distribution and other local logistics
and trade compliance services. We plan to build on our expertise in these four specific countries to build tailored services to US customers,
including in business consulting pertaining to logistics and related trade services.

a qualified local entity that holds the required license.
