Freight forwarding office in Antwerp opened by GEFCO

GEFCO has launched a freight forwarding office and warehouse facility in Antwerp, Belgium, which it says will optimise the movement of air and ocean activities.

The branch it explains will reinforce the existing network and strengthen GEFCO’s footprint in the region for GEFCO Freight Forwarding.

This is part of the company’s strategy to further develop its freight forwarding activities in high potential markets, and the Benelux region is seen as one of them.

The Benelux region is a key sector for logistics in Europe. Close to Antwerp and Rotterdam ports, Zaventem and Schiphol airports for the import-export operations, and to Brussels, Antwerp and Amsterdam for distribution.

GEFCO says it has chosen it to create an effective network that meets its industrial partners growing demand.

The Antwerp freight forwarding branch provides warehousing space and is specialised in industrial project cargo by offering integrated solutions dedicated to high and heavy projects as well as out of gauge shipments. Over a third of GEFCO shipments from the Antwerp branch consist of industrial project cargo.

Overseas Belgium director, Dave Minnebach says: “My team and I are proud to be part of the growing GEFCO family and to take part in the development of its Freight Forwarding activity.

“Our customers will greatly benefit from this evolution, which comes with a state-of-the-art IT system connecting all our offices anywhere in the world. GEFCO is in a perfect position to service our customers with a quality level exceeding industry’s standards.”
