Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium is a subsidiary of Sealogis Groupe. The Belgian subsidiary is specialised in international transport, freight forwarding and logistics. And international transport involves a lot of customs formalities. Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium enlists DKM Customs' expertise for these formalities.
Edwig Laenen, manager of Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium, explains the cooperation with DKM Customs: "Historically, DKM is our first supplier and partner. So the cooperation with DKM has been in place since the beginning of Sealogis Belgium. Although we at Sealogis Belgium are customs agents ourselves and do have a licence and knowledge, we opted to outsource customs from day one. The reason for this is that we are not yet sufficiently equipped to integrate the function into the company. Customs is an expertise in itself and DKM is the expert in the field of customs."
DKM Customs assists Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium on two levels. On the one hand, DKM assists Sealogis Belgium in the field of knowledge. On the other hand, DKM also takes care of all the material, especially the drawing up of documents and handling the relationship with customs.
Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium and DKM Customs have been partners for over 25 years. The paths of Edwig Laenen, Eddy Mees and Luc De Kerf crossed at the right moment, and since then, both companies have been growing together.
"As we have known each other for more than 25 years, I think we can speak of a relationship beyond professional boundaries. We are in contact with each other daily, which results in short and informal communication lines with DKM management. The management is always available to us, and everyone within DKM is always willing to help us. A fact to which both parties attach great importance."
Sealogis Freight Forwarding Belgium can count on the services of DKM Customs across the board. This goes from applying for licences to drawing up customs documents, processes in which both parties trust each other enormously. The fact that Sealogis Belgium and DKM have been partners for over 25 years confirms this!
