With the acquisition of Global Freight Connections (GFC), based in Basildon, we are strengthening our activities on the English market and in the Greater London area.

The medium-sized freight forwarding company GFC was founded in 2002 by Paul Marshall and offers a full range of logistics services: high-quality solutions in land transport Europe, sea and air freight, as well as for general cargo, FTL and part loads, express transport, logistics and e-commerce. Customs services for the UK (Basildon/Dover) complement the portfolio and are an important factor for our continental European branches.

Even before the takeover, there was active cooperation with various members of the Schneider Group, especially with our French branches and with Glob-Sped in Switzerland.

Martin Isler, COO Road, commented: “Due to the already very good contacts on different levels, we know the company culture and professionalism of GFC and its employees. We are therefore convinced that together with GFC we can further develop and expand our services in England in a targeted manner.”
