Scan Global Logistics (SGL) continues to expand its European presence, opening a new office in Marseille.
Marking its fourth establishment in France since its initial opening in Lille in 2021, the new office provides direct access to France’s second-largest commercial port area, and trade routes to Asia and the USA. It is, however, the port’s direct connectivity to Africa and the Middle East which presents significant business prospects.
“We are eager to serve our customers best and utilise our local connections and market integrity,” said Managing Director of SGL France, Olivier Sainterent. “With access to the Marseille port systems, we can also manage customs declarations and controls, ensuring a smoother process for our customers.”
The expansion aligns with the global freight forwarder’s growth strategy, which includes a network of more than 160 offices across 50 countries worldwide and a presence in growing economies, following a recent opening in South Korea.
Expanding SGL’s service offerings in the South of France introduces expertise to the company’s network and enhances the commercial and operational closeness to the company’s customers in the Mediterranean region, especially within ocean shipments and airfreight from Marseille and Nice airports.
‘This is essential when we un-complicate our customers’ world while ensuring that our tailor-made solutions are readily available when required,” said Regional CEO, Lars Syberg. “We must always be capable of meeting our customers’ diverse needs,”
