EUROPORTS & R-LOGISTIC: EUROPE & AFRICA IS MEETING AT ANTWERP XL
The presence of EUROPORTS and R-LOGISTIC as one entity will be a chance for both to affirm their determination to develop commercial and operational synergies – especially between the African continent and the largest logistics platforms in Europe.
Their inaugural participation is also the result of a desire to strengthen the creation of inter-subsidiary value chains led by Frederic Platini, CEO of R-LOGITECH, which has been key to the growth of both entities.
Commenting on R-LOGISTIC’s contribution to this event, Joaquin GOMEZ-YANCI, Group Deputy CEO of R-LOGISTIC, says:
“Alongside EUROPORTS, this major event is a great opportunity for our team to get closer to our European customers and to offer them the most suitable solutions for their projects in West and Central Africa.”

“EUROPORTS stands out for their breakbulk terminal, TA1207, Antwerp, the largest breakbulk terminal in Continental Europe with excellent access to trimodal logistics.
