Fiege Group: Full integration of international forwarding activities

The Fiege office in Antwerp was recently fully integrated into the Business Unit International Freight Forwarding (IFF), which consolidates all international freight forwarding activities like air and ocean

freight, but also rail and other multimodal transports. Alongside with the integration, the company has aligned his name accordingly to FIEGE Forwarding Belgium NV. With its global Fiege IFF network, Fiege in Antwerp is able to offer its customers integrated supply chain solutions with complementary value added services.

The opening of additional warehouse space in the industrial area of Herentals in 2015 underlines the growth aspirations and relentless focus on customer and market needs. The exceptional location within close vicinity to the port of Antwerp enables Fiege to perform extended value added services to its existing portfolio while operating as an open bonded warehouse.

“We are providing our customers an even greater bandwidth of services with our extended facilities, especially welcoming startup-companies and starters in the internationalization of their business”, says Bart Loos, branch manager Antwerp.

Fiege Forwarding Belgium was not only legally aligned with IFF, but is also due to go live on FIEGE’s global freight system providing FIEGE customers consistency and global visibility on their supply chain needs. Michael Völlnagel, CEO International Freight Forwarding, underlines: “The collaboration and the outstanding expertise of our employees are key success factors to fully meet our customer needs”.
