The Group’s freight forwarding services have been available to the country’s importers and exporters for over twenty years, with well-established operations in other major Spanish cities such as Barcelona, Bilbao, Madrid, and Valencia. In the south of Spain, both maritime and air transport solutions will be available, along with value-added services such as Control Tower for complete oversight, Purchase Order and Vendor Management, and Emission Reporting. The bespoke GEODIS web-based platform, IRIS (Intelligent Real-time Information System), an online booking, pricing, tracking, and shipment system, provides enhanced visibility of cargo status.
The GEODIS team in Seville will provide a global service across the GEODIS Group’s network of nearly 170 countries.
“Our new, strategically located base will greatly enhance our ability to understand the needs of our customers in the southern regions of Spain,” says Ivan Sanchez, managing director of GEODIS in Spain. “Throughout the GEODIS organisation, our mission is to assist our customers in growing their businesses.” To do so, we must coordinate with their expansion plans, facilitating the logistics that underpin those plans in the most relevant way possible. To develop such a close relationship, a localised operation is required.”
GEODIS Spain’s Managing Director, Ivan Sanchez, welcomes the Seville-based team to the GEODIS Group, which has 350 employees in Spain and over 44,000 worldwide. “Our teams, both here in Spain and around the world, are driven by passion.” “Being half Andalucian, I can assure customers that no one is more passionate than them, and I’m confident that the team in our new office will prove that with their commitment to providing excellent customer service,” says Ivan Sanchez.
