Van den Bosch grows bulk logistics network

Sept. 28, 2023
New cooperation with Celero Group extends company’s presence into East Africa, Indian Ocean islands, making it one of the ‘world’s largest tank operators for the food industry’

Bulk logistics provider Van den Bosch is expanding its network in East Africa and the Indian Ocean through a new cooperation with Celero Group.

Celero was established in 2009 as an independent logistics provider. It offers a variety of freight forwarding and supply chain solutions. The company’s strong presence in the African and East Indian transportation sectors include employees and offices in Madagascar, Reunion Island, as well as its home base in Mauritius.

“The expansion into East Africa and the Indian Ocean islands is important for our network,” Mark Ashton, Van den Bosch DMCC commercial director, explained in a news release. “Van den Bosch DMCC is based in Dubai, from where all deep-sea shipments are coordinated, and is now among the world’s largest tank operators for the food industry.”

The collaboration with Celero focuses on liquid bulk logistics for the food industry, the companies reproted. “The new regions in our network offer us unique opportunities in terms of supply change for liquid bulk logistics, as we establish connections with both African and European markets,” Ashton added. “In this, Celero shares our vision and core values, but also offers extensive knowledge, expertise, and field experience in the region.”

Marc Dalais, Celero executive chairman, said he is “very optimistic” about the partnership.

“This partnership aligns with the company’s vision and mission of adding value to people in the logistic chain.” Celero CEO Patrice Maury agreed. “Through this cooperation, the Celero team consolidates its position as a valuable contributor in the liquid bulk logistics for the food industry as part of our overall strategic path.

“We are happy to count Van den Bosch as partner and we are confident that this collaboration will help in better serving our clients and stakeholders.”
