About us

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.

Project forwarding

EUROPE CARGO has shipped all types of cargo, whether on RORO OR BREAKBULK basis.

Regardless the size, weight, and type of commodity, EUROPE CARGO is fully versed on handling this cargo properly. With our proven track record we can handle any type of project, whether it is a dismantled plant, a complete factory, steel bars & pipes or modules for one of the major oil- or engineering company.

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.

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.
