Rock-It invests in Triple M

Philippe Marecaux, managing director of Triple M

Rock-it Cargo, a specialist provider of global logistics services to shippers of equipment for live events, has made what it calls a “significant incremental investment” in Triple M Entertainment Logistics.

Triple M’s business focuses on four categories of shipping activity – live entertainment, stage, performing arts, and corporate logistics.

Paul Martins, president of Rock-it Cargo, explained: “Rock-it’s increased investment derives from the natural evolution of the relationship of the two businesses.

“The continued partnership between Triple M and Rock-it will provide best-in-class service to their joint customers.

“Triple M are well positioned geographically to assist us with all the logistics needs of our live touring customers, sports customers, industrial product customers and other end vertical markets we serve,” Martins added.

Based in Antwerp, Triple M has easy access to Brussels and Liege airports in Belgium, as well as Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Maastricht in the Netherlands, and Luxembourg Airport.

Triple M is also located close to the huge container port at Antwerp and is connected to an inland jetty allowing containers to be trucked or barged to their cross-load site. The jetty has the capacity to handle up to 15 containers or trucks simultaneously

Philippe Marecaux, managing director of Triple M, added: “We are all prepared for the potential growth that this will bring us and can’t wait to handle the increased amount of shipments that this deal is likely to generate.”

Having a strong partner in Belgium may well also allow Rock-it to hedge against the uncertain future of the UK and EU customs clearance processes that might result of Brexit, if/when that should that happen.

Martins concluded: “We have a strong presence with multiple large facilities in London. In anticipation of unforeseen Brexit challenges, strengthening our presence on the continent makes pragmatic business sense.”
