Segrate - Vanguard Logistics Services, an international maritime transport logistics company, focuses strongly on the three-year period 2022-2025 to confirm itself as a leader in the sector.
The company, owned through the fund Mancapital by the Mansour family, operates on the market with over twenty years of experience and continues its processes of acquiring branches abroad with the aim of generating new solutions and alternatives for customers, counteracting the logistical complexities generated by the pandemic and by the evolutions underway in the shipping market."These last three years have been very challenging, both for Covid19 and for the current situation - explains Alberto Accetta, General Manager South Europe of Vanguard who manages the market in Italy, France and Spain - Fortunately, Vanguard count on a network of owned branches, that allows a fundamental distinctive advantage: that of synergistically using our countries, choosing the port of sailing where is more convenient to deal with and compensate for the cancellation of ships and the unavailability of spaces, both in export and in import."
A resource that allows to reduce, both in export and import, the "roll over", ie the postponement of shipments due to unavailability of spaces, cancellations or volumes that are sometimes not sufficient. "Among the essential points of Vanguard Logistics' global strategy for 2022 - 2025, - adds Alberto Accetta - there are the continuous expansion of our owned Network, through acquisition processes (two years ago opened in Sri Lanka, in 2020 we took over the Canadian agent and inaugurated, in 2022, Vanguard Logistics Poland) and the enhancement of this network through the synergistic use of adjacent Countries, as in the case of Italy, France and Spain. Lyon, Milan and Barcelona mutually consolidate loads in Export and Import. While the Le Havre office collaborates in this sense with Antwerp and Rotterdam". In 2019, the Italian headquarters of Vanguard moved its headquarters in Milan from the historic one in the Certosa area to Segrate, the Milanese logistics hub.
"The achieved goal was for our team to live in an area where you can breathe 100% logistics; this allows you to immerse yourself even more in the role of a leading company in the sector and to develop further empathy, which is fundamental in assistance. In these very last days - adds Accetta - we have presented to all Vanguard Logistics’ employee around the world our strategy for the three-year period 2022-2025. A program based on strong investments; such as the CFS Excellence program, which provides for the qualitative enhancement of our CFSs (Container Freight Station), an strengthen in replying to the increasing demand for FCL services we’re receiving from the market and a radical digitization process where quotations, booking and customer tracking can already be done directly online".
