International Cargo Logistics (ICL), has opened a new office in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, as part of a global growth plan, which will see a focus on developing its perishables operations in Europe.

The Heathrow-headquartered forwarder, which this year marks its 20th anniversary, already operates in over 207 countries and has over 50,000 metres of logistics and storage facilities, offering comprehensive supply chain and Customs solutions.

"We are pleased to establish our presence in the Netherlands, leveraging Rotterdam's position as a logistics hub,” said Yoav Izhari, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), ICL.

“This move aligns with our commitment to better serve our clients by providing localised support and streamlining our operations."

Rotterdam provides ICL with proximity to key transportation hubs, including Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and major seaports such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and Antwerp.

"Our presence in Rotterdam represents an exciting opportunity to deepen our connections with existing clients, and foster new business relationships across western Europe,” said Ron Rombout, CEO of ICL's new Netherlands offices.

"Our expertise, joint with our location in Rotterdam, will allow us to continue delivering exceptional service, while contributing to ICL's global success.”

ICL will further extend its global reach this year, and plans to expand into South East Asia, starting with a new office in Vietnam.
