Norbert Dentressangle’s fast-growing freight forwarding division (Norbert Dentressangle Overseas) has relocated its Heathrow operation into larger premises to accommodate strong growth.
Previously occupying a shared facility, Norbert Dentressangle has taken the lease on 9,000 sq ft of dedicated office and warehouse space at the Saxon Way Trading Estate in Harmondsworth, five minutes from Heathrow Airport.
In the last two years, Norbert Dentressangle’s Heathrow office has increased its staff from six to 11 and has seen a significant uplift in business, including a marked increase in demand from online retail SMEs. In addition to supplier consolidation at origin, air and sea freight and Customs management services, Norbert Dentressangle can draw on its extensive e-fulfilment capabilities to provide a complete supply chain solution, including warehousing, order picking and carrier management.
Matt Young, UK Commercial Manager for Norbert Dentressangle’s Freight Forwarding division said: "After a tough couple of years, our business has emerged stronger and better than ever. As we continue to expand our global footprint, invest in new technology and capitalise on the wider capabilities of the Group, prospects for 2014 are extremely promising."
Norbert Dentressangle’s freight forwarding division employs more than 700 colleagues across 56 offices in 14 countries on three continents and expects to generate revenues of around €220 million in 2014.
