ROTTERDAM – Logistical services company Seabourne has recently opened a new Freight site in Rotterdam. Seabourne is not just strong on land and in the air, but also in sea cargo. From this new Rotterdam site the company can further optimise its sea transport.
Chief Operating Officer Matthijs Slob is pleased with this new step. ‘Seabourne provides the link between transport by land, sea and air,’ he explains. ‘We feel it is important to be up close and personal. It's the only way to provide the best possible service. From this new site we can work with our partners even more effectively and respond more quickly to their needs. We expect demand to pick up further and we must proactively respond to this in order to be ready for the future.’
Customer needs are key
Seabourne is a well-known player in logistics. ‘Our company has been around for over 50 years now. We have grown into an internationally operating organisation that focuses on providing a full-service solution to our customers. We research our customer's business thoroughly. Our aim is to be able to answer a customer's question before it even comes up. Our new site will help us respond to our customers’ needs even better and more quickly in terms of transport, storage and management of goods. Big or small!’
When it comes to sea transport, Seabourne has developed some specialisations. Among them are transport of live fish and delivery to cruise ships. ‘From that perspective this new site in Rotterdam was a logical step. Solving the logistical puzzle quickly, efficiently and well is more important than ever, and from this new site we can do that even better.’
It is a great pleasure for Seabourne Group to announce the acquisition today by Seabourne Forwarding Limited of the business and certain assets of our long established franchisee Air Action EMA.
Predominantly a freight operator, but with Courier work too, the business, located at East Midlands Airport, will fit well into our existing portfolio of UK offices in Glasgow, Birmingham and London, not to forget our expanding freight operation in the Netherlands.
Three members of staff have transferred with the business and in addition, Dave Masters, a shareholder of the vendor, will act as a consultant to ensure a smooth transition.
We wish this team every success integrating them into the Seabourne Group and helping grow the business.
We would like to inform you about possible delays of the shipments in France.
All roads around Paris within a radius of at least 40km are closed for heavy traffic because of a very heavy snowfall.
We keep on doing our best to follow the schedule.
Thank you for your understanding!
