Norbert goes to America

Norbert Dentressangle has opened offices in Santiago, Chile and Sao Paulo, Brazil as part of the continued development of its freight forwarding business in line with its mid-term objective to reach a turnover of 250 million euros.

Following the acquisition and successful integration of Schneider International in 2010 and TDG in 2011, Norbert Dentressangle’s freight forwarding business now employs 250 colleagues in 30 offices, in 11 countries on three continents.

Guillaume Col, managing director, Norbert Dentressangle Overseas said: “Our freight forwarding business is developing at a brisk and well-controlled pace and has reached critical mass just 18 months after it was launched… The new offices give us a foothold in Latin America and strengthen our position on the Americas-Europe-Asia axis.”

* Norbert Dentressangle’s acquisition of APC Beijing is expected to be completed in the near future, adding a further 250 colleagues and 16 branches throughout China.
