Scan Global Logistics is further expanding its presence in Europe and has opened a new office in the southern French city of Marseille.
The new office, the company’s fourth in France since its initial opening in Lille in 2021, will provide access to the country’s second largest commercial port area with direct connectivity to Africa and the Middle East.
Scan Global plans to focus initially on trade routes to Asia, particularly China and the US. The new office will also enhance the commercial and operational closeness to the Mediterranean region, especially with ocean shipments and airfreight from Marseille and Nice airports.
The company has appointed three specialists in freight forwarding, ocean procurement, and air operations with an ambition to expand the team further.
“We provide a complete range of transport solutions that cater to all needs, simplifying operations for our customers while nurturing our global approach and perspective,” explained Olivier Sainterent managing director at SGL France.
“With access to the Marseille port systems, we can also manage customs declarations and controls, ensuring a smoother process for our customers.”
