Challenge International rebrands to Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium nv
Challenge International Belgium, located in Antwerp, changes her name to Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium nv; a name change for the sake of equivocality in the Sealogis Group.
Part of something bigger
The Sealogis Group is a French holding that groups 30 companies under 3 core businesses worldwide: ‘Sealogis Freight Forwarding’, ‘Shipping’ and ‘logistics and Trucking’. Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium nv functions as an autonomic nv under Sealogis Freight Forwarding.
Managing director Edwig Laenen: “This change in name is a direct consequence of the 2019 fusion in the group. Since that fusion, some companies formed a new entity: Sealogis Freight Forwarding. All branches in this entity changed their name and we were the last company to do so. Sealogis Freight Forwarding is with 15 companies prominently represented in Europe. In addition, it also possesses 2 establishments in the French Caribbean.”
The Sealogis Group comprises 900 employees: 400 of them work at Sealogis Freight Forwarding and 35 work at Sealogis Freight Forward Belgium in Antwerp. The headquarter of the group is located in Le Havre, France.
Excellent reputation and fame thanks to vertical expertise
In 1995, Edwig Laenen conducted the start-up of the Belgian branch of Challenge International in Antwerp. “We started off small, but obtained an excellent reputation in the world of shipping and expedition. Strategically we are focused on vertical expertise and we are known to deliver high added value and deep knowledge. Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium in 2020 generated a revenue of 30 million euro”.
Creating Solutions Worldwide
Edwig Laenen talks highly of his team: “After 25 years of being a fixed value in Antwerp, we are very closely involved with our customers. We have the know-how at our disposal to create the best and most personal (our customized service) solutions for them, which is really what makes the difference in the present-day market. We possess all the solutions and resources of a big freight forwarder, but maintain the DNA of a medium sized player. We remain strong in knowledge and provide added value, which is exactly what our slogan emphasizes: ‘Creating Solutions Worldwide’.”
