Moerdijk-based Frans de Wit International B.V. has acquired the Belgian company Red Dot Services bvba. Red Dot Services bvba is a 3PL (3rd Party Logistics Provider), specialising in freight forwarding and shipping of chemicals and gases in ISO tank containers, with a focus on traffic between Asia and Europe. Red Dot Services was founded by Inge Karlberg in 2007 and now retired. The company’s mission is to assist its customers with their logistics requirements involved in the import and export of their freight. Red Dot Services will retain its company name and its site in Antwerp. For the time being, former CEO of Red Dot Services, Steve Govers, will continue to be involved to ensure a smooth transfer.
Expansion of the forwarding and shipping activities
Lars de Wit, CEO of Frans de Wit International B.V.: “By means of these new forwarding and shipping activities, we have expanded our range of services further still. This means that we can now be of service to our customers not only in Europe, but also in Asia. This is an extension of our one-stop-shop concept, where all services fit together seamlessly and reinforce one another.
Cooperation and synergy
Steve Govers, former CEO of Red Dot Services bvba: “Based on our cooperation, I am convinced that the synergy that exists between the two companies will be strengthened by this acquisition. As Frans de Wit has its own forwarding services, the logistics process will be much more efficient and faster for our customers. This means that the rapid service customers of Red Dot Services are accustomed to will be safeguarded.
