European Land Transport Network Expands into Morocco
DB Schenker has upgraded its branches in Tanger and Casablanca, Morocco, extending its European land transport network to the African continent. National company Schenker Maroc SA provides daily connections with the European DB Schenker terminals, based on direct lines with Spain, France, Germany, and Italy.
“As the gate of Africa, Morocco offers a very strong strategic position for the African transportation market,” says Karl Nutzinger, Member of the Board of Management of Schenker AG, responsible for Land Transport. “The high quality standard of our arm in Morocco enables us to offer customers services under well-known high quality and security level.”
The company noted that DB Schenker in Morocco is meeting the very high quality standards of the DB Schenker land transport network, going beyond the ISO standard. This has been confirmed by successfully passing a product audit which has been conducted by a neutral certification body.
On top of this, DB Schenker in Morocco has been awarded the security focused TAPA FSR A-level certification for its facility in Casablanca, after an intensive implementation process. The DB Schenker platform in Casablanca is now an ideal base for logistics solutions for high-value products in northern Africa, according to the company.
With the two certifications in the field of security and quality, DB Schenker in Morocco has completed the range of services for customers with fully integrated and standardized processes and a warehouse that meets most demanding security requirements, according to the company. The terminal has a bonded warehouse of 4,800 square meters for cross-dock activities and value added logistics services.
