Irish freight forwarder Maurice Ward Group, which has a presence across Europe, has expanded its network with a new office in Antwerp, Belgium.

The new facility will be led by branch office manager Nancy Verstraeten, who is new to the Maurice Ward Group team.

Verstraeten commented: “As a Branch Manager with more than 20 years of experience in the Antwerp forwarding field, we see Belgium as the ideal hub for supporting the other Maurice Ward agencies in Europe and of course also the international agents.

“Belgium may be a small country but Antwerp has a strategic location in Europe at the intersection of major traffic and trade flows. The port of Antwerp is the second largest in Europe and for certain goods even the largest in turnover.

“With its own regional airport and a dense network of rail traffic and the international airport of Zaventem being only half an hour away, we are crucial for the smooth, safe and rapid movement of goods by ocean, road, air and rail.”
