Scan Global opens first office in France
Scan Global Logistics (SGL) has opened its first office in France today. Following the successful expansion in Benelux, Poland, and the Czech Republic, the new office is expected to bring a strategic position to provide uncomplicated logistics to key European markets, the freight forwarder states.
Currently, Scan Global’s business in France is handled by agents. By establishing its own operation, the company wants to offer its customers strengthened service offerings, access to global logistics solutions, and expertise.
“As a fully-owned SGL operation, all customers will benefit significantly from our agile, flexible, and responsive business handling. A hands-on, solution-driven and personal approach is pivotal to delivering in a world of complicated logistics and unforeseen events”, says managing director Olivier Sainterent, who will run the office.
Sainterent has more than 25 years of supply chain experience and previously worked at Damco. He will be supported by Sebastien Delmotte, who joins the company from Heppner, and will act as branch manager.
SGL France is a full-service air, ocean, and rail forwarder offering global logistics services, order/carrier management, and customs brokerage. The office is based in Lille.
