Exhibitor Spotlight: Sealogis
Antwerp, Belgium, known as a bustling hub for project cargo, is the perfect backdrop for Sealogis, a company with a remarkable presence in the world of logistics. Edwig Laenen, managing director North Europe of Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium, provides valuable insights into the company’s unique focus and the importance of being part of AntwerpXL this November.
Three pillars of Sealogis
The Sealogis group was built on three solid pillars, according to Laenen: freight forwarding, shipping, and logistics. The company takes pride in being a shipping line agent in France. With a vast network spanning over 26 offices across Europe and substantial warehouse space, Sealogis employs approximately 1,000 people dedicated to delivering top-tier logistics services.
Across industries and borders
Sealogis Freight Forwarding is not just a local player; its reach extends globally. The company’s involvement in project cargo spans across African countries like Angola, Ghana, Ivory Coast, and Nigeria. In South America, Sealogis has also left its mark. Furthermore, the company is a member of the WCA Project Cargo Network, enabling them to work with agents worldwide on top of his network of own offices
‘Our real strategy is focusing on a number of verticals,’ says Laenen. This strategy includes a strong presence in industries such as the chemical sector, food industry, logistics, and project cargo.
Sealogis Projects shines in the project cargo business, particularly in areas like oil and gas, renewable energy, rail equipment, and construction materials.
At this year’s Antwerp XL event, Sealogis plans to showcase its expanding broach, focusing on exposure and networking opportunities. This event serves as a platform for the company to bring its employees working on project cargo, spread across various locations, together. Additionally, they aim to promote their individual brand, Sealogis Project Cargo, which was launched last year.
Being a native of Antwerp, Edwig Laenen considers AntwerpXL a home game. ‘It is the reference point in Europe for Breakbulk and project cargo,’ he says. He acknowledges the uniqueness of this event, which is smaller in scale compared to others, allowing for more personal interactions.
‘For Sealogis, participation in the AntwerpXL event is not just about promotion; it’s a commitment to the project cargo industry,’ comments Laenen. He continues: ‘Not being present is not an option.’ It’s an opportunity to showcase Sealogis as a significant player in the project cargo market. The company’s presence at AntwerpXL is both a testament to their dedication to this sector and a promise to grow with the event in the future.
