Menlo expands freight brokerage service into Eastern Europe

Menlo Freight Brokerage has announced the opening a second European office in Prague, the Czech Republic. Menlo plans for the new office to extend the reach of Menlo’s freight brokerage services to the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Austria, Romania and Russia in coordination with existing operations in Amsterdam.

Menlo Freight Brokerage is a dedicated transportation service which offers 3PL warehousing and supply chain management services in Europe.

Koert Bloemers, Menlo’s General Manager Transportation Europe said, “The key aims of the new office are to broaden our footprint through new business relationships in Eastern Europe and extending the high quality services already established in Amsterdam.”

From the office Menlo expects to offer services from arranging transportation for single shipments to total transportation management solutions. This is supported by a carrier and procurement network, coupled with a team transportation specialists.

Menlo’s Managing Director, Tony Gunn said, “In establishing Menlo Freight Brokerage in Europe we have adopted best practices from our North American colleagues, where it is branded Con-way Multimodal, and combined those with our Lean tools and a team of European transport specialists to create a unique service offering for European shippers. The concept is different from the historically well-known in Europe, freight forwarding, or expedition model. Brokerage has a greater higher flexibility and operates with a wider supplier portfolio, creating better purchasing power and worldwide coverage.”
