July 20, 2015: With the opening of a Prague office dedicated to its European Freight Brokerage Service, Menlo Logistics is expanding its reach into Eastern Europe.
Menlo Freight Brokerage was fully established in Europe in 2013, operating initially from the company's European headquarters office in Amsterdam.
With growth in customer demand, Menlo recently expanded its brokerage operations, opening a second office in Prague. The new office extends the reach of Menlo's freight brokerage services to the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Austria, Romania and Russia in coordination with current operations in Amsterdam.
Koert Bloemers, Menlo's General Manager Transportation Europe emphasized the significance of the Prague move, "The key aims of the new office are to broaden our footprint through new business relationships in Eastern Europe and extending the high quality services already established in Amsterdam."
With its expanding freight brokerage capabilities, Menlo is now able to offer a wide-ranging service from arranging transportation for single shipments to total transportation management solutions.
Menlo's Managing Director, Tony Gunn also commented, "In establishing Menlo Freight Brokerage in Europe we have adopted best practices from our North American colleagues, where it is branded Con-way Multimodal, and combined those with our Lean tools and a team of European transport specialists to create a unique service offering for European shippers.
The concept is different from the historically well-known in Europe, freight forwarding, or expedition model. Brokerage has a greater higher flexibility and operates with a wider supplier portfolio, creating better purchasing power and worldwide coverage."
