Torrestir and Transuniverse sign an exclusive partnership in Belgium
As of 1 February, the Belgian group Transuniverse Forwarding will be Torrestir’s new agent for handling flows to and from Belgium. “At the beginning of last year, we established an exclusive partnership with the CargoLine distribution network in Germany. In addition, our network in Eastern Europe and Italy has been refined and improved. Now it’s time to expand services to and from Belgium through an exclusive partnership with Transuniverse,” says Helder Silva Managing Director Torrestir Transitarios (Torrestir and Transuniverse sign an partnership).
Belgium is a strategic and important destination for Torrestir, with daily departures from Belgium to Portugal and 3 times a week from Portugal to Belgium, involving a number of more than 30 lorries that will allow us to serve general cargo, ADR cargo, High-Value and Fashion, increasing Torrestir’s response capacity in order to meet the needs of our customers and the market.
Transuniverse Fowarding is a groupage specialist based in Belgium, with more than 70 berths and around 200 employees at its office in Wondelgen Ghent.
According to operations director Jo Vormezeele, “With this exclusive partnership, we can cover the country more thoroughly from now on. An additional advantage is the improved tracking of shipments thanks to automated data traffic.”
Portugal is an important destination for Transuniverse, with daily departures to Porto and Lisbon. “Our sector is evolving. Customers not only demand higher departure frequencies, but also shorter transit times, including to more remote destinations. They also expect fast and accurate information on the status of their shipments and proof of delivery. Torrestir, our new partner in Portugal, can meet these demands thanks to automatic data sharing,” added Jo Vormezeele.
