ASIA – EUROPE – THE AMERICAS – Following a raft of acquisitions, including the recent purchase of the freight forwarding activities in India and Sri Lanka of Sri Lankan conglomerate John Keells Group, Norbert Dentressangle has now officially launched Red Ocean Connect, a containerised ocean cargo network providing door-to-door FCL and LCL services between Asia, Europe, and North and South America, after the successful launch of its airfreight network Red Sky Connect.

Under the new service, the company will offer local vendor management, daily FCL and LCL services, customs and duty management and destination services, which Norbert Dentressangle hopes will provide a secure and reliable service managed by a single partner. For European destinations, the service also provides access to the firm’s pan-European transport and logistics networks. Managing Director of Norbert Dentressangle Overseas, Guillaume Col, said:

“We continue to strengthen our freight forwarding operations in growing markets and we are now present in all key areas: China, Latin America, the United States, Europe and now India and Sri Lanka. The launch of the Red Ocean Connect freight service is another key step for the development of our global freight forwarding operations.”
