BLG Logistics expands international forwarding business
June 30, 2016: BLG Logistics Group AG & KG takes over Fortragroup with retroactive effect from January 1, 2016. The two companies signed the contract in Bremen.
Fortragroup comprises the forwarding companies Logfortra GmbH Logistic, Forwarding & Transport and Infortra GmbH International Forwarding & Transport.
The group's core competencies lie in international shipping and air freight plus overland transports, project business, customs services, and logistics systems.
Christian Marnetté, managing director of Forwarding at BLG, says, “Over the past few months we've worked hard on systematically expanding our national and international forwarding services. They perfectly complement the activities of our Automobile, Contract, and Container divisions. We want to show customers that we can offer a complete service package. Now, with the integration of FORTRAGROUP, we've taken a major step further.”
BLG Logistics has operated its own forwarding division in Bremen for decades. The division is a major player in overland as well as overseas transport.
Alexander Opszalski, who has been the managing partner upto now, is leaving the Board of Management. He says, “However, I'll be acting as a close advisor of BLG for a transitional period. Together we'll ensure the smooth continuation of our longstanding customer and employee relationships.”
The transaction is still subject to approval by the antitrust authority.
