With effect from 19 November Transuniverse Forwarding is taking over all the activities of Herentals-based firm GC Trans, which specialises in groupage shipments to Ireland, alongside a number of traditional southern European destinations. Manager Denis Glorie will remain on board and join the Transuniverse team.
“Although GC Trans is an SME, it has extensive knowledge of the Irish market. This will significantly strengthen Transuniverse’s existing traffic to Ireland, double capacity and dramatically increase the frequency of departures”, says Michel Nierinck, member of Transuniverse’s Board of Directors. Transuniverse is taking over the firm’s customer portfolio and its other assets, with the exception of its vehicles.
Denis Glorie will be joining the team in Wondelgem and will now be able to offer GC Trans’ customers a much wider choice of destinations.
“This acquisition fits in perfectly with Transuniverse Forwarding’s growth strategy, as part of which we are aiming to double our annual turnover to 100 million euros by 2022. We will achieve this by broadening our service offering – including expanding our intermodal services – and strengthening existing traffic”, Michel Nierinck concludes.
