German container line to expand in Swiss market in collaboration with MAT MARINE AGENCIES AG
Effective October 1, SENATOR LINES will be represented in the Alpine region by MAT MARINE AGENCIES AG, located in Basel. This agency, which is part of the family-run international VIA MAT Group, will take over the work of Senator’s previous representative, Cargonautic AG, and will be looking after existing customers with a team working exclusively for the Bremen company.
Both companies - SENATOR LINES is primarily a Europe-Asia specialist - have further plans to strengthen the carrier’s market position in this classical freight-forwarding country.
‘We were most favorably impressed by MAT’s concept for a rapid expansion of the import and export business in this region of the European market, a market which is very relevant to us,’ emphasized Axel Meier, head of European organization at Senator Lines, during an inaugural visit by MAT MARINE managing director Peter Gastiger to the Bremen Head office. ‘We are sure we shall soon be able to show a considerably higher presence in this region as a partner in freight forwarding.’
Peter Gastiger is pleased about the new cooperation, ‘Our longstanding experience as well as the existing business contacts will be of benefit for the higher presence of SENTOR LINES in Switzerland. As competent partners we will offer efficient, flexible and qualified solutions for shipping industry.’
