Despite a downturn in the global shipping industry, European logistics company Norbert Dentressangle has launched ‘Red Ocean Connect’, a managed, end-to-end global sea freight service which connects the company’s global offices.

Following a raft of acquisitions, which include the Indian and Sri Lankan branche activities of Sri Lankan conglomerate John Keells Group, Norbert Dentressangle now has a major presence in the world’s major trading regions, which are, according to the company: ‘located to manage freight from all key economic gateways’.

Following the launch of its Red Sky Connect airfreight network earlier this year, Red Ocean Connect allows the freight forwarding division of Norbert Dentressangle to provide a door-to-door service between Asia, Europe, North America and South America both by sea and air, ensuring complete, end-to-end supply chain management and control.

Under the new service, Norbert Dentressangle offers local vendor management, daily FCL and LCL services, customs and duty management and destination services.

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.”
