The force majeure which led us to change partner was more of a blessing in disguise rather than an unanticipated catastrophe that could have ended in our retraction from this market.

Having been involved in the Greek market 2005, circumstances in February 2012 led us to change our partner. Since then, our road freight groupage service has grown from strength to strength.

Before this new partnership we were unable to transport dangerous goods to/from Greece, and furthermore our cost structure made us uncompetitive. Following the appointment of our new partner, with facilities not only in Athens, but in Thessaloniki too, plus their ability to manage dangerous goods, we have been able to become more financially competitive, and have been able to introduce dangerous goods into this line.

As a result of the above, our business has increased, and we are now making between three and four Export Groupage trailers each week. We are now offering a minimum of twice weekly road freight groupage services to and from Athens and Thessaloniki, each Tuesday and Friday without fail. Using round trip driver accompanied trailers in the main, we are able to provide the level of assurance in that we can keep control on where our client’s cargo is at all times.

Our Partner in Greece

Vianox Svolos SA has been established in Athens, Greece, since 1968. The Svolos Group has enjoyed a successful business record in several fields, from manufacturing through to distribution, I.T. systems, and sea freight within the bulk sector. In addition, in 1997 they entered the Third Party Logistics Service (3PL) by developing a modern 25,000 square metre warehouse and distribution centre in a prime location in Athens.

In 2012 Vianox Svolos SA expanded its logistics activities into the international forwarding sector, taking additional advantage of the demise of one of the leading Greek forwarders, and so, for the UK, this is where we come in.
