Challenge International Belgium rebrands to Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium nv
Challenge International Belgium, located in Antwerp, changes her name to Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium nv. A name change for the sake of equivocality in the Sealogis Group.
Part of something bigger
The sealogis Group is a French holding that groups together worldwide 30 companies under 3 core businesses: ‘Sealogis Freight Forwarding’, ‘Shipping’ and ‘logistics and Trucking’. Sealogis Feight Forwarding Belgium nv functions as an autonomic nv under Sealogis Freight Forwarding.
Managing director Edwig Laenen: “This name change is a direct consequence of the 2019th fusion in the group. Since that fusion some companies formed a new entity: Sealogis Freight Forwarding. All branches in this entity changed their name and we were the last company to do so.
