Leading logistics provider, Hellman Worldwide Logistics UK, has announced a new road freight partnership with H. Essers, Belgium’s leading groupage logistics company. From September 1st, Hellmann and H. Essers will launch a new daily shuttle system servicing both the UK and Belgium.
The new network partnership will be provided in accordance with System Alliance standards and will link Belgium and the industrial regions of the UK with a 48-hour door-to-door service.
This latest announcement follows Hellmann’s recent partnerships with Diehl Spedition in Stuttgart and Itella Logistics in Scandinavia.
Guido Van Dessel, General Manager at H.Essers’ Genk headquarters, commented:"This partnership represents a way for both companies to further improve the scope and range of their customer service. We are one of Belgium’s leading freight forwarding companies, while Hellmann brings an equivalent level of expertise and resource in regards to the UK so, in terms of providing the very best logistics provision, this is a fantastic union".
Matthew Marriott, Commercial Director of Hellmann UK, commented:
"H. Essers is one of the most renowned and respected logistics providers in Europe and has a similar background to Hellmann due to being a family run business – we are delighted to have announced this partnership. We are committed to consolidating and improving the quality of our services across Europe, and this new partnership is a really positive step for both companies. The daily shuttle means that we can offer a 48-hour door-to-door groupage service – something I’m sure customers on both sides of the channel will really appreciate".
