GEFCO Group and BERGÉ, a provider of multimodal logistics services in Spain, have agreed to create an alliance to provider finished vehicle logistics services in Spain. The new equally-owned company, BERGÉ GEFCO, will be formed by the finished vehicle logistics divisions of both companies in Spain.
BERGÉ GEFCO will offer customers a full range of finished vehicle logistics including transport, storage, technical services, inspections and delivery. The combined resources and transport means of the partner companies will provide comprehensive end-to-end services including logistics design and engineering from customer production sites to delivery to final customers.
The new company will utilise 3.4 million sq m of storage at compounds and ports and have the capacity to manage and transport 1.4 million cars annually. It aims to fulfil this challenge with a fleet of 700 vehicle trucks and 100 rail wagons. Services will be provided at its 10 Spanish logistics centres and through 40,000 sq m of workshop space.
“We are very pleased to create a joint venture company with BERGÉ. Our partnership will allow us to offer an extended range of high-quality services that will benefit our customers, partners and employees,” highlighted Luc Nadal, Chairman of GEFCO SA’s Management Board.
BERGÉ GEFCO will offer an extensive portfolio of logistic solutions to current customers of both companies. This, GEFCO states, will enable them to better manage seasonal peaks and benefit from dedicated resources. In addition, the new company expects to develop strong operational synergies through pooling of resources and capacities, and to strengthen both its position on domestic and international flows.
