Transuniverse Forwarding and Italmondo join forces

Transuniverse Forwarding and Italmondo have entered into a strategic partnership. From now on, this Italian groupage specialist will take care of the distribution of our shipments to Italy and vice versa. Both businesses will therefore be able to take their groupage transport between Italy and Belgium to a higher level.

This strategic partnership will mean Transuniverse can further improve its services to and from Italy, one of its core markets. We currently provide over 50 departures to that country each week, but that number is likely to grow fast.

Italmondo has transshipment platforms all over Italy. This means direct line services can be set up from Wondelgem (Ghent) to the biggest cities and industrial centres, while earlier groupage shipments will have to be transshipped in our cross-dock centre in Milan. Thanks to these direct lines, the lead times to all destinations in Italy can become considerably shorter. I am convinced that the collaboration with Italmondo, a leading and respected player in Italy, will be extremely beneficial for both parties”, says Olivia Adins, member of the Board of Directors of Transuniverse Forwarding.

More Import and Export Streams

Italmondo has 10 departures a week to Belgium. Transuniverse will now take care of distribution in Belgium for those customers via our subsidiary Intercargo Logistics.

Because Transuniverse can rely on Italmondo’s close-knit network in Italy, our customers that primarily have export streams to that country can count on improved service provision. The contact people will remain the same in Milan and Wondelgem.

Thanks to this collaboration, the volumes going in both directions will grow, so that in a relatively short period of time, we will also increase the frequency of the departures. Transuniverse in Belgium will then become one of the biggest players, if not the biggest, in groupage transport to and from Italy.

that we have entered into within a short time. In August, we concluded an agreement with Danish group LEMAN, one of the market leaders in the groupage sector in Scandinavia. This will enable us to increase our frequency in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland.
