EUROPE CARGO is an international freight forwarding company that was established in 1992 in Antwerp as a complete service-provider towards local companies being involved in shipping, logistics & transport. The founding of our company was a result of the desire to service the Belgian market and provide a better and faster service towards our customers.
Over the years EUROPE CARGO developed itself into a more all-round player in this industry on the international market where today we still gain more and more market share in our industry of shipping and transport.
However the philosophy remained the same as from day 1 where we still strongly believe in our distinctive capabilities, providing an all-round service to our clientele, based on being an effective and efficient team, working on a personal basis with our esteemed customers.
Since the day the company was founded in 1992, FORWARDING has been our main goal. We try to work out the best tailor made logistic solutions and/or methods of transport for each of our customers, agents and business friends.

As we still consider Antwerp as one of the most important ports for conventional cargo in Western-Europe we have specialised ourselves in assisting customers with FOB-deliveries. In this respect we consider ourselves as being the link between the manufacturer, supplier, shipper, the stevedores, customs, the liner agent and receivers. We make sure your cargo is on quay side before closing date.
Suppose that regular ships and their strict sailing schedules are not fitting into your schedule….Or you demand special requirements for your cargo, ports and capacity which might create the need for a vessel to transport your cargo whenever and wherever you want it.

As we have our own in-house independent port agency or captains room, EUROPE CARGO provides a full agency service pack toward the shippers, owners, charterers and their respective clients. We are the link between all above mentioned parties and most important, their cargoes.

This depending, if there is a rail- or inland water connection, we will work out the best and competitive solution.

EUROPE CARGO is offering her customers the right warehouse for all type of goods. As we have fixed different kinds of storage-contracts with several warehouses, we are able to store goods for longer or shorter periods of time, custom-bonded or not and depending on the demands of our customers.
Due to the variety of our handling all kinds of cargoes, we have chosen not only to operate from one warehouse. We use our various warehouses for handling:
Time is money and sometimes cargo just needs to move fast to match the just in time delivery which the market requires nowadays. At EUROPE CARGO we understand that and that’s why we set up an airfreight division with a J/V partner at Brussels airport.
Via this setup we completed the missing link in our full service package and are able to provide the best possible rates in airfreight.
