GLOBAL provider of logistics services to live event shippers Rock-it Cargo says it has made a significant incremental investment in Belgium's Triple M Entertainment Logistics, a company that focuses on four categories of shippers - live entertainment, stage, performing arts and corporate logistics.
Rock-it Cargo president Paul Martins was quoted as saying in a report by AJOT: 'The continued partnership between Triple M and Rock-it will provide best-in-class service to their joint customers. Triple M are well positioned geographically to assist us with all the logistics needs of our live touring customers, sports customers, industrial product customers and other end vertical markets we serve.'
Located in Antwerp, Triple M is both close to the seaport and connected to an inland jetty enabling containers to be trucked or barged to their cross-load site with the capacity to handle up to 15 containers or trucks simultaneously.
For air cargo from Antwerp, Triple M has ready accessibility to Brussels and Liege airports in Belgium, and Schiphol and Maastricht in the Netherlands, as well as Luxembourg airport, giving shippers a selection of routes into and out of Northern Europe and the rest of the continent.
Commenting on the fresh round of investment, Triple M managing director Philippe Marecaux said: 'Considering our geographical location and our team of enthusiastic and hands-on operators, it will surely make Triple-M and Antwerp the preferred gateway to Europe for the entire CargoLive family.
'We are all prepared for the potential growth that this will bring us and can't wait to handle the increased amount of shipments that this deal is likely to generate.'
Mr Martins added: 'In anticipation of unforeseen Brexit challenges, strengthening our presence on the continent makes pragmatic business sense.'
