Supply chain business, DFDS Logistics Belgium, has partnered with an equipment specialist to strengthen its 4PL value proposition.
DFDS Logistics, in Ghent, Belgium, will outsource its truck and trailer repairs and maintenance workshop to Global & Local Enterprises.
“Thank you to Luc Geysen for making this longterm partnership happen in an efficient and timely manner,” said Global & Local Enterprises Chairman, Joop Roijakkers.
“The workshops are our first strategic priority.
“Our goal is to expand and have our operations close to major European transport hubs. I am very happy to further execute on our outsourcing concept, this time at the Ghent harbour in Belgium with DFDS,” he said.
“We were looking for a reliable partner to run our workshop and decided to use their experience, skills and focus to create a win-win solution for both partners,” said DFDS Logistics Belgium Managing Director, Luc Geysen.
DFDS Logistics Belgium is focused on the development of its 4PL asset-based solutions.
“With our extensive network consisting of rail and road services, terminals, vessels, and hub, together with a strong IT-backbone, we are able to offer custom made solutions to selected industries,” DFDS Logistics Belgium said in a statement.
In February, DFDS specified Carrier’s Vector HE 19 tech to reinforce cold chain sustainability.
Last year, Global Trailer investigated DFDS' expansion in Rotterdam.
