Our new Antwerp office
is open

April 28, 2020

To better respond to current and future customers’ needs, we have opened a new office in Belgium, Antwerp, an important step in the development of our business that we are proud of. Expansion into Belgium further enhances MWG’s presence in Europe with currently more than 40+ owned offices in 25+ European countries.

We are so happy to welcome the infectiously enthusiastic Nancy Verstraeten, Antwerp office’s Branch Manager, to our team!

“As a Branch Manager with more than 20 years of experience in the Antwerp forwarding field, we see Belgium as the ideal hub for supporting the other Maurice Ward agencies in Europe and of course also the international agents. Belgium may be a small country but Antwerp has a strategic location in Europe at the intersection of major traffic and trade flows. The port of Antwerp is the second largest in Europe and for certain goods even the largest in turnover. With its own regional airport and a dense network of rail traffic & the international airport of Zaventem being only half an hour away, we are crucial for the smooth, safe and rapid movement of goods by ocean, road, air and rail. One of the main highlights of our port is The Kieldrecht Lock (Dutch: Kieldrechtsluis), the largest dock lock in the world, which offers a perfect answer to the ever-increasing shipping traffic”, said Nancy.

The first ever ‘cargo only’ flight was recorded in November 1910 in the USA, using a Wright Model B aeroplane that flew 65 miles carrying a package of silk. The business owner used the pioneering transport more as a PR stunt to celebrate the opening of his store, with the bundle of silk cut into individual pieces and glued onto souvenir postcards.

    • Short sea shipping to UK and Ireland – We give you a sea of possibilities

      Short sea shipping has a relatively long history but now it became actual again, more than ever. The reason is obvious, Brexit and the significant issue it brought to road freight services between the UK, Ireland and the EU.

      Brexit and its consequences for the logistics sector

      The United Kingdom (UK) is out of the European Union (EU). After difficult negotiations lasting more than 2 years, the UK officially left the EU on January 31st 2020. Since then, the UK and the EU have long negotiated the future relationship that entered into force on January 1st 2021. Negotiations have been difficult and, in the end, they ended in a limited agreement.
